I'm currently in my 4th year of studies as an undergraduate. I'm doing a major in Psychology. I eventually plan to attend graduate studies, in the area of Quantitative Psychology. I'm currently doing my honors thesis in the area of Item Response Theory, specifically analyzing multiple choice data from introductory psychology classes. I also work part time on campus as a statistics advisor for fellow undergraduate psychology students who need help with their own honors theses. My interests include: SEM, Item Response Theory, and Probability/Mathematical Statistics.

on the non-academic side of things, i've done statistical work for fisheries & oceans canada, as well as a local marketing firm.

I do just what I do here.

That is, I assist researchers (mainly academic) understand and apply statistics to their data. I do both pure consulting, i.e. advising, as well as some projects, and I'm planning on adding some workshops in the near future. I used to do this in a university statistical consulting office, but am now on my own.

I was ABD in social psych when I realized the only part I liked about *doing* research was analyzing the data, so I left with my masters and got a masters in applied statistics with the one year I had left of a fellowship. Consulting in academia has turned out to be a perfect fit for me.

I'm also a student - doing my master's thesis in psychology. I also work part time for a text/email youth depression service. I really don't have much of a formal stats background, have more picked up the odd thing as I go along in the current degree (and during the Finance one that I did before it, for no good reason at all!)

I've wanted to be a clinical psychologist for a long time, but am starting to think applied research or even social science methodology might also be a good area to try and eke out a living in... must choose DClinPsych or PhD at the end of this year!

Trying to enter the field of applied research and Biostatistics, currently i am working on statistical projects of low difficulty and in other positions to earn some money for further studies.

I was searching for a forum in statistics to practice and extend my English on statistics and my statistical knowledge in general.

See you around, happy to be here.

Now I'm completing my undergraduate degree in mathematics part-time. I work as an information analyst for a HR company where I model data and get about a 1/3 of the wage I was on when I was out in the mines. Still, I enjoy my current line of work much better as it is far more challenging and Im not spending my day counting time.
