Charlotte’s graduate courses are known for being highly engaging and inclusive as well as providing highly valued content to students.  Students identify Charlotte as highly knowledgeable, well organized, welcoming, and inspirational.  Congratulations Charlotte – you raise the bar for all of us!



“She always gives the most detailed and helpful feedback on homework and projects, and it demonstrates how much she cares and that she really has looked deeply into the work you have submitted and that she thought a lot about how you could improve. For class projects, she always sets very clear expectations and gives a good structure throughout the class of how to make progress. I've modeled some of my own research/side project goals and time management from structures she's introduced in-class projects. “  a Statistics graduate student


“She answered questions asked in class thoroughly, thoughtfully and without judgment and always responded to email/discussion board questions promptly. I would gladly take any class taught by Charlotte because I know I would enjoy the material and the learning process, whatever the course content might be.”   a Statistics graduate student


“I'll say that Charlotte knows the most about R programming and related skills (GitHub, Tidyverse, etc.) of anyone I've ever encountered. Because programming in R is tangential to applying statistical methods, I greatly appreciate Charlotte sharing her skills and knowledge in both lecture and office hours. “  a Statistics graduate student
