About / Portfolio

My name is Jerzy Wieczorek.
(I’m also civilstat on Twitter, GitHub, and Goodreads.
My email address is my [firstname lastname at gmail dot com].)

I’m a PhD candidate in Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University, now ABD and expecting to graduate by May 2018.

Formerly I was a mathematical statistician with the U.S. Census Bureau, working primarily in small area estimation, Bayesian statistics, and data visualization. I’ve also applied my statistics skillset in transportation engineering, neuroscience, and humanitarian and volunteer work. My other interests include languages and linguistics, education and teaching, etc.

I’m a proud graduate of the inaugural class of Olin College, and later of Portland State University’s Statistics program.
