Dr. Kim Love is the owner and lead collaborator at K. R. Love Quantitative Consulting and Collaboration. She has a B.A. in mathematics (2003) from the University of Virginia, and an M.S. (2004) and Ph.D. (2007) in statistics from Virginia Tech. After 2007 she worked as a statistical consultant and collaborator in multiple professional roles, most recently as the associate director of the University of Georgia Statistical Consulting Center. During her five and a half years there, she provided statistical assistance for roughly 180 clients per year, in addition to training statistics graduate students to become independent statistical consultants. She is also active in the American Statistical Association, in particular the Section on Statistical Consulting, where she currently serves as the Section Communications Officer.
Kim's areas of academic specialization include nursing and health sciences, as well as forestry, natural resources, and agricultural sciences. While she enjoys working with clients with varied backgrounds, she particularly enjoys working with those who feel they have a less-than-perfect relationship with statistics. One of her goals is to spread an appreciation of statistics across many fields of study, starting by making it understandable to those who interact with it!
Kim's statistical expertise includes regression and linear models, categorical data, generalized linear models, mixed effects models, nonlinear models, repeated measures, and experimental design, but she has experience in a variety of other areas as well. You can find a recent copy of her CV here, which includes co-authored papers and conference presentations.
Please feel free to contact Kim directly if you have any questions.
