PG Podcast - Episode 27 - Roger Peng on being a podcasting professor
May 2017 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Roger Peng (@rdpeng) is a Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He is widely known both within and beyond academia for co-teaching a series of wildly popular online data science courses, including several MOOCs on the Coursera platform. He also co-hosts not one but two popular podcasts: The Effort Report on life in academia and Not So Standard Deviations on data science.
I first met Roger back in 2011 when I was a Ph.D. student attending a workshop on reproducible research. Many years later, our paths are crossing once again in the virtual world since we are both professors who have recently gotten into podcasting.
In this PG Podcast, we discuss how we fit podcasts and other creative projects into our action-packed day-to-day lives as professors. Then like a podcasting jiu-jitsu master, Roger suddenly turns the tables and starts interviewing me about my whiteboards, notetaking, and research collaboration habits!
