Here is my visual resume built using my
VisualResume R package (see Visual Resume R Package).
My educational background is in mathematical statistics and experimental psychology with an emphasis on cognition and decision-making. I obtained a B.A. in Mathematics from Grinnell College, a M.S. in Experimental Psychology from Ohio University, and a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Basel.
I am a cognitive scientist interested in decisions under uncertainty, with a focus on information search, impression formation, and decision making. I am passionate about R, open science, reproducible research, and Bayesian statistical methods.
I have published research on unconscious decision making and decision making under competition. I am also self-publishing an introductory e-book on R titled YaRrr! The Pirate’s Guide to R. For more information about my past, and future publications, view my CV.
I have given several talks and workshops on decision making and R at international societies such as the Society for Judgment and Decision Making, the Society for Mathematical Psychology, and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development. I am available for future talks by request.
I conduct statistical programming workshops in R, ranging anywhere from 2 hours, to 3 full days. These workshops are designed to give people with little to no programming experience the tools they need to conduct replicable data analyses and create elegant research reports using R. Please contact me if you would like to arrange an on-site workshop.
I have tought courses and supervised theses in judgment and decision making, research design, statistics, and R programming at universities such as the University of Basel and University of Konstanz. You can find an example of my course syllabi here
