Statistics

My interest in math started when I was in elementary school. I always enjoying solving math problems. Although I did not chose math as my major in college, life somehow directed me to another path - statistics.

I earned my Master's degree and PhD degree in statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While a graduate student, I worked as a statistical consultant with scientists and researchers in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, helping them with experimental design, statistical modeling, data analysis, programming, as well as presentation and manuscript preparations. Since graduation, I have been working in the pharmaceutical industry, where not only did I analyze data from clinical trials, I also got to meet with FDA to discuss study designs, issues, or protocols in clinical trials and drug development processes.

In 2017, I launched Statistical Mindset. The purpose is to help people develop a statistical mindset so that they won’t be misled by misrepresentations of statistics in the news or publications. For you need any help with statistics, please visit my consulting company Briostat.
