About Me

floatright I am about to transistion to a tenure track position in the Educational Measurement and Statistics program at the University of Iowa. This position is a bit unique as I will be working half time with the Iowa Testing Program and also half time as a faculty member. I am excited to embark on this new adventure and move back closer to family and friends.

I am wrapping up my position as Visiting Assistant Professor in the Educational Statistics and Research Methods program at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Prior to this, I worked for a year at Saint Paul Public Schools as an Assessment Specialist in the Research, Evaluation, and Assessment department.

I recently graduated from the Quantitative Methods in Education program at the University of Minnesota in February 2013. While there I specialized in applied statistics and became interested in longitudinal modeling and computational methods. I also enjoy computing in general and have become proficient in numerous statistical programming languages, especially R.
