Hello! I'm Robert Parker, and I am a Clinical Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Florida. I am originally from Ridgeland, MS where I got a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Millsaps College and a Master of Science in Mathematics from Mississippi State University. In 2012, I enrolled at the University of Florida and received my PhD in Statistics in May 2017.

My teaching career started as a graduate teaching assistant at Mississppi State University where I taught Trigonometry and continued at the University of Florida where I taught introductory statistics. During my time as a PhD student, I was also an adjunct mathematics professor at Sante Fe College during the summer terms.
