Doing research is one of my favorite parts of being a professor. I love helping students discover that they are (social) scientist. I’ve taught research methodology, program evaluation, and statistics for eight years. I am here to help you with your own research, with research you are doing with students, or just to help you discover new ways to approach quantitative data.

I will be offering workshops on statistical programs, doing quantitative research with undergraduates, survey design, and other topics that may be of interest. Please don’t hesitate to suggest workshop ideas!

Please contact me for individual consultations.
