About

I’m a recovering statistician.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot from reading excellent blogs (like Frank Harrell’s Statistical Thinking, Statistical Odds & Ends and Biased & Inefficient) but found myself falling victim to The Collector’s Fallacy - bookmarking and saving nearly every article and spreading myself too thin in an attempt to absorb everything, ultimately getting nowhere.

And so, I decided to start a blog that I wish I had access to when I first started to learn about data and statistics over 15 years ago: a blog that explains the what (what is the concept?), the why (why should I care?) and the how (how does it actually work and how can I apply it in practice?) of key concepts about data and statistics as a series of simple recipes that you can follow in your day-to-day life.

Please feel free to drop me an email or find me on Twitter if you have any questions, comments or suggestions - I’d love to hear from you.
