I retired in 2023 as Professor Emeritus after more than 40 years of academic success in stats and data science. I now pursue an inspired mix of personal interests and intellectual pursuits, continuing some prior research in systems thinking. I empower partners to develop useful insights from data, leading to papers, (R) software projects and new web tools. I am Founding Director (2019-22) of the campus-wide Data Science Institute and co-created (2016-18 with Michael Ferris and Lauren Michael) the Data Science Hub; earlier (2011-15), I chaired the Statistics Department.
