Meet a Statistician: This Week’s Facebook Live Host is Glen Wright Colopy

It’s the final week of April, which means Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month (MASAM) is coming to an end. While we celebrate statisticians every day, this month featured a special weekly Facebook Live Q&A spotlighting real statisticians.

Over the course of the month, statisticians from around the country in a wide variety of jobs chatted with students and teachers about their careers and how statistics plays a role in their daily lives. Our guests included:

  • Sam Echevarria-Cruz, a professor at Austin Community College, who uses statistics to study social behaviors;
  • Urban Institute Vice President and Chief Methodologist Rob Santos, who applies statistical principles to help researchers collect and analyze data for policy insights;
  • Chris Franklin, the K-12 statistics ambassador for the ASA and retired professor, co-author of statistics textbooks and past chief reader for AP statistics exams; and
  • Claire McKay Bowen, the lead data scientist for privacy and security at Urban Institute who develops algorithms to analyze data privacy.
