Honors College Faculty
Born in East Germany, Peggy has a keen appreciation for the importance of making data science accessible to everyone. Her training in high performance computing has infused all the projects with higher expectations for quality and stability, and her expertise in data representation has made it possible to think about larger and more integrated data projects. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the department of Information & Logistics Technology.
She also co-directs the Data Analytics in Student Hands (DASH) program, which helps students to engage in meaningful data science projects. Peggy has her doctorate degree through the University of Stuttgart's High Performance Computing Center, and her research is on emerging patterns through data in areas where qualitative and quantitative data sources come together. Those emerging patterns can inform policy decisions or measure the impact of interventions as well as improve workflows for quantitative analysis in the social sciences and humanities. In addition to teaching at ILT and working with DASH, she is currently serving on the Advisory Commitee for the Digital Research Commons (DRC) here at UH.
