Graphical Representations of Statistical Cognition

Lovisa Sundin completed her BSc degree in computing science and psychology at University of Glasgow in 2017, and is now a second-year PhD student. Across STEM, many graduates are now expected to not only have a grasp of common statistical procedures, but also skills in statistical programming. Her research is concerned with both, by evaluating ways of helping novices implement statistical procedures programmatically. Specifically, she is interested in a range of graphical techniques meant to address various cognitive aspects of this process: the conceptual, the computational and the syntactic.
