Ben Wiles


Most recently, I've served as Assistant Head of the Department of Mathematics (Purdue University), inaugural Director for Institutional Effectiveness (Purdue University), and inaugural Chief Data Officer (Clemson University).

Over the years, I've also conducted and published research in number theory, education, and automotive engineering. My current research relates to understanding and supporting non-cognitive factors associated with the equitable development of quantitative and technical knowledge/skills for application in professional settings.

I've also taught 28 different courses (mainly mathematics, statistics, and education) over the last twenty years to over four thousand students at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels. In addition, through research or as a practicing teacher, I've taught math to elementary school students with learning disabilities, general math for middle school and high school students, and functional life skills for teenagers and young adults with moderate/severe intellectual disabilities and autism. I actively consult in the development of curricula and assessments for online programs and currently teach inferential statistics for undergraduates and courses related to STEM education for graduate students. I believe in helping any student achieve their academic goals.
