Karle Flanagan
Statistics and Data Science Education

Hi everyone! My name is Karle and I'm one of the stat 100 instructors. I've always loved math, statistics, and education. Teaching stat 100 is the perfect job for me since I can help students from many different majors gain an appreciation for all 3.

A few other things about me: I'm a huge Illini fan- I went to school at UIUC, met my husband at UIUC, and now I work here. U of I is one of my favorite places in the world! I also enjoy spending time outside, playing piano, water skiing, snow skiing, and traveling.

Jonas Reger
Analytical Statistics

My name is Jonas and I'm a grad student studying analytical statistics. I completed an A.S. Computer Science degree and a B.S. Statistics & Mathematics degree so I'm very interested in all things maths/stats/cs!:) In addition to working as a TA for STAT 100, I also manage and develop the STAT 100 course website and work as a TA for STAT 107: Data Science Discovery. I was born and raised in Champaign, but I also lived in San Diego for awhile! I enjoy reading, gaming, playing piano, hiking, and talking with friends.

Cheyenne Petersen

Psychology & Kinesiology

My name is Cheyenne Petersen and I am a Senior studying Psychology. When I took STAT 100 as a freshman, I discovered a new interest in statistics and wanted to join the STAT 100 team! I am a huge Chicago Cubs fan, and I think it would be interesting to have a career in sport psychology and involve statistics. In my free time, I am on the Illinois Rowing Club team and enjoy reading and exercising. A fun fact is that I like trying different coffee shops on campus to keep up with my iced coffee obsession!
