About the Author


Ok, you have found the vanity page. Every web site run by a single individual has one. This is mine.

I have been a statistical consultant and research methodologist for more than 30 years. My Ph.D. was originally in psychology and I am still licensed in that field. For the past 20 years I have been head of research for a global HR development firm in Portland, Maine and Dublin, Ireland. I primarily study cross-cultural leadership and issues of workplace diversity. Before that, I was a graduate school professor in Southern Florida for 10 years teaching multivariate statistics and statistical programming (and surprising, family therapy and adult psychopathology).

Just recently, I've left Maine to join the faculty in the Quantitative Analysis Center at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. I am very excited to be back in the classroom again.

I am happily married to a beautiful woman who also happens to be a forensic psychologist. Clearly her dinner conversation is more interesting than mine. We have a wonderful golden retriever named Ella. Come to think of it, her dinner conversation may also be more interesting.

I created Quick-R for one simple reason. I wanted to learn R and I am a teacher at heart. The easiest way for me to learn something is to teach it.

I hope you find this web site helpful. If you do, let me know.
