I'm an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Swarthmore College. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics and Public Policy in 2008 from Carnegie Mellon University. My general research area is psychometrics and latent variable analysis.

Student Researcher Needed

I am planning to have one opening for an undergraduate student researcher for the fall 2015 semester. This is a paid position funded by the Center for Social and Policy Studies at Swarthmore College. Please email me if you are interested. Due to funding restrictions, eligibility is limited to Swarthmore students. The preferred prerequisites are Stat 31 and/or Stat 61 and CS 21 (or equivalent), but some combination of Stat 11, CS35 and/or other experience may suffice as well.

The job will mainly involve 1) building a database for use by me and my collaborators; 2) inputting and cleaning data that is currently in paper format into the database, and 3) analyzing the data for interesting trends and summaries. For more information, please email me. To apply, please send me an email with your name, class year, relevant course experience (and grades) and a paragraph explaining why you are interested in the job.
