I was fascinated by statistics, when I was at the Newcastle University in England. When my family moved to Normal, IL ten years ago, I became a part-time student studying mathematics. Through the study of applied statistics, I have been learning how mathematics can be useful in the real world. My current interest is data mining, which is a study of analyzing big data with statistical techniques, and which involves programing using statistical software, such as R and SAS.
I graduated from the Illinois State University in December 2015. I was fortunate to be taught by great professors who are devoted teachers as well as researchers (some of my teachers are known worldly as pioneers in their fields).
I am very fortunate to have an opportunity to teach at Midstate College where all the teachers, staff, and administrators are passionate about helping students to succeed, as this fits well with my values of teaching and learning.
