\begin{pSubsection}{Smith College, }{Northampton, MA}{2015-2018}{Visiting Assistant Professor}
{At Smith College, my research program focused on statistics education, statistical computing, data visualization, and spatial statistics. In Spring 2016 and Spring 2017, I led groups of undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students as part of the MTH 301 independent research seminar. We focused on Methods to Address the Change of Support and Modifiable Areal Unit Problems.}

\begin{pSubsection}{Viewpoints Research Institute, }{Los Angeles, CA}{2013-2015}{Graduate Intern}
{The Viewpoints Research Group is a research group with a variety of interests including the future of programming, internet-scale computing, and programming language design. I collaborated with other researchers on projects to improve statistical computing tools for novices (those with no statistics or programming experience). Examples include \textbf{LivelyR} with Aran Lunzer and \textbf{locatr} with Ted Kaehler. Director: Alan Kay.}
\end{pSubsection}
\begin{pSubsection}{Mobilize Project, }{Los Angeles, CA}{2011-2014}{Graduate Student Researcher}{The Mobilize project brings data analysis and statistics to life by allowing high school students to collect information about the world around them using mobile phones, then analyze the data and do something with it. As a graduate student researcher, I developed curriculum to be deployed in LAUSD public high schools, including the innovative Introduction to Data Science course. Over hundreds of hours of professional development, I trained teachers on basic statistical concepts, use of inquiry in teaching, and basic statistical software. Principal Investigator: Rob Gould.}
