Hi! I’m Josh Starmer and welcome to StatQuest! StatQuest started out as an attempt to explain statistics to my former co-workers – who were all genetics researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill. They did amazing experiments, but they didn’t always know what to do with the data they generated. That was my job. But I wanted them to understand that what I did wasn’t magic – it was actually quite simple. It only seemed hard because it was wrapped up in confusing terminology and typically communicated using equations. I found that if I stripped away the terminology and communicated the concepts using pictures, it became easy to understand.
Over time I made more and more StatQuests and now it’s my passion on YouTube.
