Education research

I am interested in Bayesian statistics education and online statistics education.

Through Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL), I have been involved in exploring ways to share i) advanced level mathematics and statistics courses, ii) an introduction to data science course across multiple liberal arts college campuses. See the Course Sharing Project page for details.
