About me

I’m a PhD student at York University’s Quantitative Methods program in the Psychology Department. I am interested in equivalence testing, accuracy in parameter estimation, effect sizes, and Monte Carlo simulations. In addition, I’m very passionate about teaching statistics, data science, programming, and philosophy of science. I strongly advocate for open-science practices, replicable and reproducible research, and I am an avid R user.
