Clay Ford

Clay joined the UVa Library as a Statistical Research Consultant in 2013. He helps students, faculty, and staff with data analysis questions. Some of the services he provides include assistance with data wrangling and data manipulation, experimental design, selection and implementation of statistical methods, and data visualization. Since coming to UVa Clay has led over a dozen workshops on statistical software and methods, developed and taught a Data Wrangling with R short course, and co-founded the UVa R Users group. He also started and regularly contributes to StatLab Articles, a collection of blog posts on data analysis and statistical practice.

Clay obtained his Master’s degree in Statistics from UVa in 2010. He previously worked as a biostatistician at PRA and a project manager at Thomson Reuters. As life allows, he blogs about statistics in the hopes one of his posts will turn up in search results and be of use to someone.
