Victoria Stodden, Associate Professor

Associate Professor Victoria Stodden will present her research on reproducibility at the University of Delaware Department of Computer & Information Sciences Distinguished Speaker Lecture on April 6. The theme for the lecture series is "rising stars in a scientific world of convergence."

According to Stodden, the rate of production, collection, and analysis of data, and the speed at which computational infrastructure is changing (e.g., technologies for cloud computing, network capabilities, and high performance computing systems) implies a need for extreme agility in computationally enabled research. 

"In my talk, 'The Science of Computational Reproducibility,' I will outline a research agenda for the science of reproducibility that responds to the opportunities created by this rapid evolution in research environments, addressing reliability and robustness of machine learning discoveries, quantification of variability in data and cyberinfrastructure on scientific findings, and new facets of the research pipeline that impact our ability to generalize and use the products of scientific research."

Stodden's research addresses a wide range of topics, including standards of openness for data and code sharing, legal and policy barriers to disseminating reproducible research, robustness in replicated findings, cyberinfrastructure to enable reproducibility, and scientific publishing practices. She serves as an associate editor for reproducibility for the Journal of the American Statistical Society and serves on the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Coordinating Committee.

At Illinois, she holds affiliate appointments at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NSCA), College of Law, Department of Statistics, and Department of Computer Science. Stodden earned both her PhD in statistics and her law degree from Stanford University.
