I am a Senior Lecturer and researcher in the Quantitative Methods in Education program within the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Minnesota. I currently teach undergaraduate and graduate-level courses in statistics and train and supervise graduate students in statistics education. In a previous life I taught mathematics and A.P. Statistics at ROCORI High School in Cold Spring, MN.

My scholarship focuses on statistics education. I have also authored/co-authored several papers and book chapters related to statistics education, and have been a co-PI on many NSF-funded statistics education research projects. Additionally, I have co-authored two textbooks that serve as an introduction to modern statistical and computational methods for students in the educational and behavioral sciences. I currently serve as co-editor of the journal Technology Innovations in Statistics Education and as a member of the Research Advisory Board for the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE).
