Allen Downey

I am a Professor of Computer Science at Olin College in Needham MA, and the author of Think Python, Think Bayes, Think Stats and other books related to computer science and data science.

I keep a portfolio of my professional activities in this GitHub repository.

Several of my books are published by O’Reilly Media and all are available under free licenses from Green Tea Press.

I write a blog about Bayesian statistics and related topics called Probably Overthinking It.

In 2019-20 I was a Visiting Professor at Harvard University.

Previously I taught at Wellesley College and Colby College, and in 2009 I was a Visiting Scientist at Google, Inc.

I have a Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley and B.S. and M.S. degrees from MIT.  Here is my CV.
