Dr. Christina Chen teaches statistics courses in the College of Business and in the College of Natural Sciences and Math and the Cook School of Leadership and also teaches Chinese in the College of Humanities. A life-long learner and native of China, Dr. Chen has built her teaching philosophy around the Chinese proverb that asserts “to give students a bowl of knowledge, one must have a barrel.” She enjoys preparing her students with statistical awareness in hopes of building up intellectual and influential Christian leaders.

Prior to joining DBU, Dr. Chen served at the University of North Texas as the manager for the Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Analysis. While in this role, she assisted doctoral students with their dissertation research designs and data analysis and worked closely with faculty members in their research projects and grants. She also has experience assisting businesses with data analysis and performance management. A deep interest in international education has led Dr. Chen to present at international conferences across the globe, including the Chinese American Development Association and the Research and Statistics Exchange conferences.
