Associate Professor Victoria Stodden has been reappointed as a member of the Advisory Group for the National Academy of Engineering Online Ethics Center (OEC). OEC provides resources for understanding and addressing ethically significant issues in science and engineering, serving those who promote learning and advance the understanding of responsible research and practice.
The Advisory Group provides "high-level oversight of the expansion of the OEC as it becomes the go-to online source for resources on ethics and ethics education in science and engineering." Among its activities are assisting the Content Editorial Boards, ensuring the engagement of the National Academies, and providing an annual evaluation of the project to the National Science Foundation.
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 is a member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Committee on Reproducibility and Replicability in Science, the NAS Roundtable on Data Science Postsecondary Education, and Member-at-Large of the Statistics section (Section U) of The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
At Illinois, she holds faculty affiliate appointments in the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NSCA), Coordinated Science Lab, 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.
