We are very pleased to announce that the Campion (President's Invited) Lecturer at this year's RSS Annual Conference is Dr Rebecca Goldin.
Dr Goldin is a professor of mathematics at George Mason University and the director of STATS, a collaboration between Sense About Science USA and the American Statistical Association (ASA) to improve statistical literacy among journalists, academic journal editors, and researchers.
Her work with STATS has appeared in many media sources, including NBC, CBS, NPR, CNN, and the Washington Post. She has worked individually with journalists from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, 538 and many other media outlets, as well as run workshops for journalists and students alike.
She continues to work with journalists to improve statistical reporting and we very much look forward to hearing her insights at this year's conference.
