Dr Bronwyn Loong is a Senior Lecturer in Statistics. She is the convener of Introduction to Bayesian Data Analysis as well as the compulsory first year statistics course for all undergraduate students at the ANU College of Business and Economics. Dr Loong is passionate about equipping students with solid statistical computational skills as they head into the workforce. She engages students by using real-life examples to motivate and explain statistical concepts.
"Ultimately, I want my students to have fun with statistics and the statistical tools that they have learnt about
in my courses."
"It has been a challenging but a most rewarding experience to lead and coordinate the development of this course from essentially a blank canvas. But the effort has been extremely worthwhile knowing that our statistics students are graduating with the necessary modern data analysis and computational skills
to pursue their careers."
