I am a Programmer/Analyst in the Department of Statistics here at Penn State and a student in the Data Analytics Master's program (MPS-DAAN) through World Campus. I graduated from Penn State in 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in IST and began working in the Statistics Department shortly thereafter. Now, I take part in developing online courses and statistics education applications, manage the web presence for The Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE), organize DataFest @ PSU, and serve as a liaison for Nittany Data Labs! As of Fall 2022, I am also an online instructor for our online programs at World Campus. Resident Tech Guru if you ever need help.
