School of Psychology
University of Sussex
I am Professor of Quantitative Methods at the University of Sussex, UK. I wrote the bestselling textbook ‘Discovering Statistics using SPSS: and sex and drugs and rock n’ roll’, which won the British Psychological Society book award in 2007. I also wrote a version of that book for R. In 2016 I published ‘An Adventure in Statistics’, a hybrid science fiction novel, graphic novel and statistics textbook.
My unorthodox teaching of statistics has gained me University of Sussex (2001, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020) and British Psychological Society (2006) teaching awards and a prestigious National Teaching Fellowship (2010).
