This is me:

Doing some work!

I’m a researcher, programmer, and statistician with a Ph.D. in Research, Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics from the University of Kansas. After several degrees in language studies, I had a change of heart and pursued more quantitative interests. Now I spend most of my time analyzing data, thinking about statistical models, and learning new tricks in R. My research interests include Differential Item Functioning, hierarchical models, and the application of statistical models to educational interventions and operational testing programs. For more info about my qualifications, check out my CV and/or résumé.

When not thinking about statistics, I enjoy science fiction and fantasy novels, trying new recipes, and taking too many photos of my cat. I also make programming-related cross stitch designs and sell them on my Etsy store, commandlineXstitch.

I live in New York City with the aforementioned cat.

Here I am around the rest of the web:
