Title Details
Biosketch  9/6/2011 I have over 20 years experience working as a subject matter and methodological and statistical consultant outside and within the university setting in such areas as international law, urban poverty, evidence based medicine, public health, childhood overweight, education and international aid. I have carried out statistical modeling of complex professional practice relationships (using, for instance, multiple regression and logit loglinear procedures), as well as program evaluation for corporate and academic clients. Past Director of Research and Grantwriting at the ADA, I helped to create the ADA Evidence Analysis Library and have been involved in numerous evidence analysis projects. I have worked on projects for a variety of academic and public sector organizations, including the Malcolm Weiner Center for Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, the U.S. Department of Education, the Center for Law and Globalization in affiliation with the American Bar Foundation and the Northwestren University, the American Dietetic Association, the Cooper Institute, the Lilly Trust and Opportunity International. In the two years as an Associate Professor in the department of nutrition, I have mentored over 40 masters and five doctoral students on the statistical analyses for their research projects.
