We are pleased to announce our second confirmed keynote speaker for DataTech19: Mine Çetinkaya-Rundel (Associate Professor of the Practice, Duke University, and Data Scientist + Professional Educator at RStudio). Mine’s work focuses on innovation in statistics and data science pedagogy, with an emphasis on computation, reproducible research, student-centered learning, and open-source education.

Mine also works on the OpenIntro project and teaches the popular Statistics with R MOOC on Coursera. In 2016 Mine received the American Statistical Association’s Waller Education Award, and in 2018 the Harvard University Pickard Lecture Award. Mine will be joining Jared Lander (Chief Data Scientist of Lander Analytics and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Columbia University), our other keynote speaker at DataTech19.
