LYNETTA CAMPBELL has a passion for finding the stories that are hidden in the numbers and for sharing this love of what statistics reveals with students at all levels. She holds an M.S. in statistics, an M.S. in Mathematics, an M.S. in Management Science, and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering.
Lynetta worked twelve years in the Chemical Process Industry, during which time she participated in the design, construction, and start-up of projects in polystyrenics. However, it was her work in the implementation of statistical quality control programs that lead her to focus on data collection and analysis.
In the course of earning her masters degree in statistics, Lynetta gained extensive knowledge in programming with R. She greatly enjoys working with conventional data analysis tests as well as customized simulations using this language.
Lynetta has assisted graduate students with their data analysis in fields as diverse as engineering, education, and public health. She can assist clients with their initial exploratory data analysis, usually with a graphical approach to viewing the data. She makes sure each client understands the basics, such as how to properly state the null and alternative hypotheses, and how to test for equivalence using procedures such as independent sample or paired sample t-tests. She routinely helps clients in the selection of the proper regression methods to employ, helping them to understand generalized linear models, logistic regression, and logit and loglinear models. Her ultimate goal is always that the client gain full understanding of what his or her data has to say. In this manner, she has worked with clients whose data was highly qualitative, such as survey data, and she has assisted students with highly quantitative data involving modeling and forecasting. In addition to working with R, she is highly proficient with SAS, SPSS, and JMP, statistical software and programming languages.
Independent Data Analysis Consulting
Performed data analysis for clients in a wide range of disciplines including educational, industrial, and biostatistical applications. I am seeking to continue in this line of work. I am experienced with many commonly used math and statistics software packages and programming languages such as all Microsoft products, SPSS, R, JMP, and Matlab.
Adjunct Math Instructor
Taught math classes ranging from developmental prealgebra through Calculus. I currently teach only college level courses. I also have extensive tutoring experience (CLA certified), both in the college learning center and with private clients. I tutor in both math and statistics.
1995 – 1999
1990 – 1991
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA
Worked in the chemical engineering catalysis lab researching the use of high surface area aerogels as catalytic support materials.
1980 – 1991
ARCO Chemical Co., Monaca, PA
Responsibilities included design and start-up of new facilities, instrument control configuration of new operating units, provision of engineering support to operations at an expandable polystyrene production facility, and implementation of a statistical quality control system.
M.S. Statistics (in process)
