Doing Statistics

Michael Posner, director of the Center for Statistics Education and associate professor of statistics in the department of mathematics and statistics at Villanova University, describes his work: “As a kid, I reveled in playing with numbers. As a statistician, I enjoy applying this skillset to areas of interest to me, even as that changes over the years. As an educator and consultant, I love seeing that moment of discovery when a story is made clear with data. As a provider for my family, I value knowing that my skills will be in demand for the foreseeable future.”
