I am passionate about promoting data literacy, coding, and programming, and I am dedicated to creating transformative learning experiences that extend beyond traditional classroom settings. My goal is to equip students with practical skills that are relevant and applicable in real-world scenarios. Additionally, I actively practice computational reproducibility using R Markdown/Quarto and Git/GitHub.
