Thoughts from the team

I'm interacting with exciting research every day. I get to collaborate with researchers from every area of the medical campus (and external clients, too!), so I'm constantly learning new science and working with different data sets. I've also learned so much about being a collaborative statistician by working with so many other statisticians, who all have different interests and expertise.

Great mentors, and lots of fellow Minnesotans! CIDA is a great group of people that I can nerd out and talk stats with. My coworkers even taught me how to ski!

The freedom to explore my interests and grow within my field. The whole team is supportive of each other.
