Shannon Conners

Director, Software Development R&D, JMP

Shannon Conners is the Director of Software Development R&D for JMP Statistical Discovery LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of SAS that creates interactive and highly visual statistical discovery software designed for scientists and engineers.

In this role, Shannon manages production of new JMP software releases within the research and development group of JMP. Shannon attended Mount Holyoke College where she graduated summa cum laude with a major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and an interdisciplinary minor in Culture, Health and Science.

Before joining JMP in 2006 as JMP Genomics product manager, she used SAS and JMP to analyze and visualize microarray data from microbes from extreme environments during her PhD studies and postdoctoral work in bioinformatics at North Carolina State University.

When she's not busy developing world-class statistical software, Shannon enjoys lifting weights, walking and bike riding. Home projects including trim work and painting, furniture refinishing and shelving construction and being a mom to two children (one in high school and the other in grade school) also fill her free time.
