Speaking

Throughout my undergraduate and graduate education in experimental physicists I long struggled with a poor understanding of statistics. Consequently I am now passionate about improving statistics pedagogy and communication, especially for early-career researchers. As opportunity permits I travel around the world speaking about statistical workflow and computation as well as hosting intensive, interactive Stan workshops. If you are interested in having me speak or host a workshop then please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am particularly interested in hosting workshops for underrepresented communities and minority-serving institutions.

Occasionally my talks are recorded and made available online. If you know of any talks that I am missing here then please let me know!
