Assistant Professor of Finance, Coe College
Professor Chen attended the October 2013 TIER workshop. He is involved in a wonderful student summer research program at Coe College called the Spellman Research Fund. Student participants use a summer or two to conduct faculty-supervised research projects, which are often turned into their senior theses. The protocol he learned from TIER is a perfect idea for his student researchers. Professor Chen plans to adopt it. Students will not only learn how to document unprocessed and processed data appropriately, but will also understand the most important part of scientific research: replicability.
