Hi! I’m Jenny (she/her), a PhD researcher at the University of Sussex (2019 – 2022). I am fascinated by all things quantitative methods related, especially how they can be improved and how they’re learned. My PhD examines statistics anxiety, asking whether it is a unique construct and what the subsequent theoretical and methodological implications are. I enjoy grappling with tools such as R and GitHub in an effort to make my research transparent and reproducible.
Prior to my PhD, I completed a PGCert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education at the University of Brighton (2019), an MRes in Psychological Methods at the University of Sussex (2018), and a BA(Hons) in Applied Psychology and Sociology at the University of Brighton (2017). I am a first-generation, mature, student-parent.
As the Mathematical, Statistical, and Computing Psychology section rep, I am looking forward to representing postgraduate students who specialise in these areas, as well as anyone using related skills in their research and I’d love to hear from you if you have a question… or more of a comment!
