In July 2022 I became the John H. Harland Dean at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. Previously I was on the faculty of the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. I'm a Data Scientist at the weekends (the sexy name for a Statistician). You can follow the exploits of a Statistician turned Dean/Data Scientist on my accounts below.

An Introduction to Statistical Learning

​As the scale and scope of data collection continue to increase across virtually all fields, statistical learning has become a critical toolkit for anyone who wishes to understand data. An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides a broad and less technical treatment of key topics in statistical learning. Each chapter includes an R lab. This book is appropriate for anyone who wishes to use contemporary tools for data analysis.
