Dr. Ryan Lekivetz, Senior Manager, Advanced Analytics R&D, JMP
Statistical Science Proseminar

This presentation offers insights into the work environment at JMP Statistical Discovery LLC, a prominent statistical software company, with a specific focus on the Research and Development (R&D) division. Within this dynamic industry, I'll showcase unique aspects of working at JMP, emphasizing the collaborative and innovative culture that defines the company. In this talk, I will share insights on software testing, a critical aspect of the company's operations. While the testing group at JMP have graduate degrees in statistics and related fields, software testing is not a topic covered in most statistics programs. This talk will discuss the challenges and intricacies of software testing and cutting-edge testing techniques used within JMP.

Dr. Ryan Lekivetz is a Senior Manager of Advanced Analytics R&D at JMP, heading the Design of Experiments (DOE) and Reliability Development team. Ryan earned his doctorate in statistics from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia. He has published papers on DOE topics in peer-reviewed journals and holds many patents that he shares with his team members. His research interests include design of experiments, combinatorial testing, and assessing the usability of statistical software through designed experiments.
