Jenny Terry (she/her) is a Lecturer and Doctoral Researcher of Statistics Education in the School of Psychology at the University of Sussex.

She now convenes the first-year, first-semester statistics module at Sussex, where students are introduced to R. Jenny also teaches on other undergraduate and postgraduate statistics modules.

Jenny’s PhD combines her enthusiasm for improving research methods in psychology with her substantive interests in statistics education by examining the discriminant validity of the popular Statistics Anxiety Rating Scale (Cruise et al., 1985) using a variety of psychometric and other quantitative methods, including the SMARVUS project - a multi-lab statistics education study. She also has an active interest in coding pedagogy.

Jenny is the Founder and Director the RoSE (Researchers in Statistics Education) Network.
