Jeff Jonkman

Associate Professor
Department Chair of Statistics


On Leave 2015-2016

Jeff came to Grinnell in 2009, and was previously a faculty member at Mississippi State University and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, where he taught a variety of statistics courses.

Jeff's primary research is in the area of meta-analysis, which deals with the study of appropriate statistical methods for combining results of different studies of the same treatment or phenomenon. Recently he has also worked on statistical methods for dose-response data in pharmaceutical studies. When not doing statistics, Jeff enjoys reading, doing crossword puzzles, listening to music, playing golf or tennis, and watching sports on TV. His love of statistics started young, in the form of an early obsession with sports statistics.
