Webcast on reproducibility to feature Stodden

Victoria Stodden
Victoria Stodden, Associate Professor

Associate Professor Victoria Stodden will present the webcast, "Community Efforts Advancing Reproducibility and Transparency in Data- and Computationally-Enabled Research," on February 7. Her talk is part of a nine-week series of webcasts hosted by Project TIER (Teaching Integrity in Empirical Research), in which leaders in research transparency discuss their latest thinking on how to make statistical research open, reproducible, and credible. Registration for the webcast, which will take place at 12:00 p.m., is free but required to access the live stream.

In her talk, Stodden will give an overview of recent developments in computational reproducibility, including a 2019 report by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) Committee on Reproducibility and Replicability, of which she was a member. She will offer some thoughts on directions emerging from the report recommendations and engagement from the cyberinfrastructure ecosystem, with a particular emphasis on the role of human factors and workforce development.

Stodden is a leading figure in the area of reproducibility in computational science, exploring how we can better ensure the reliability and usefulness of scientific results in the face of increasingly sophisticated computational approaches to research. She is a member of the National Academy of Engineering Online Ethics Center Advisory Group and National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS), and a member-at-large of the Statistics section of The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

At Illinois, Stodden holds faculty affiliate appointments in the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), Coordinated Science Lab, College of Law, Department of Statistics, and Department of Computer Science. She earned her PhD in statistics from Stanford University and her law degree from Stanford Law School.
