About the instructor: As a young child growing up in Montreal, I became captivated by baseball when the city was granted a major league franchise in 1969. I also loved mathematics, and instantly became engrossed by the plethora of statistics that were recorded in the sport, from batting average for hitters to earned run average for pitchers. Over time, my interest in statistics grew, and as I studied engineering, business, and other fields, I came to view the discipline as universally applicable.

My fascination with business applications led me to pursue a Master's degree in business administration. I greatly enjoy teaching Business Statistics, as it affords me the opportunity to illustrate many of the important uses of statistics in the wide array of fields encompassed by business and management.
