Research Data Specialist Brenna Kent, MS.

Please enjoy learning more about Brenna and, if you believe that she can assist you with your work, contact her via the Ask Us form, or email.

What originally drew you to your field?

I was originally drawn to the field of data science/statistics because it allows you to work on a variety of projects with a variety of people. This also helps to make sure that I’m always learning something new.

How does your work relate to the Library’s mission/guiding principles

Part of the Library’s mission is to support education and research. I will be contributing to those goals by leading workshops on R and Python to help expand the skillset of students, researchers, and clinicians. I will also be supporting research by providing statistical consults.

What most excites you about your work here?

I am most excited about helping people gain confidence in their data analysis skills.

What classes/workshops will you lead in the coming year?

I will be leading our four course workshop on R this September. Starting in October, I will also be leading Introduction to Python and Data Analysis in Python workshops.

What is something you have on your "bucket list"

I would like to see the northern lights in Iceland.

What is the best thing you've read/watched/listened to recently?

The best thing I’ve read recently would be a tie between Shark Heart by Emily Habeck (if you like non-traditional romances) and Pachinko by Min Jin Lee (if you like generational dramas).
