UBC Statistics Graduate Teaching Award
PhD student David Kepplinger is this year’s recipient of the UBC Statistics Graduate Teaching Award. David has been, and continues to be, an important part of the Department’s teaching mission. He has served for two years in the training of Department Teaching Assistants and has furthered training in modern methods in statistics through his teaching assistant work in the fourth yeard course in modern methods of statistics and his R programming workshop leadership in the Department’s partnership with the UBC CREATE program, ECOSCOPE. In addition, he has contributed to hands-on training through his mentorship of co-op students. In everything he does, David shows not only a high level of expertise in statistics and computing but also a reflectiveness and spirit of personal growth, coupled with a supportive and community-building approach.
