I'm on the job market this year!
To empower more people and organizations to understand and act on data.
I study the challenges statistical non-experts face when collecting and analyzing data, develop and deploy open-source tools that address these challenges, and theorize about how the data analysis process fits into larger theories of sensemaking and scientific discovery. To develop new tools, I identify and design abstractions that enable analysts to leverage their domain expertise to achieve their analysis goals without losing sight of why they started down the statistical rabbit hole in the first place.
My PhD work has focused on designing for researchers and other domain exerts who are not statistical experts. I’ve been lucky to have collaborators at the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation and elsewhere who inspire and motivate this work!
