I'm a research psychologist and Ph.D. statistician. I'm easy to work with, and have a sense of humor! I've used SPSS statistical software for a number of years and even own my own copy. I've been a luncheon speaker at a SPSS users group. I've worked on a great many applied research and program evaluation topics. These have included a wide range of topics, including: equal employment opportunity, employment discrimination, personnel research, organizational climate, and educational/training/bilingual/longitudinal program evaluation.
I am well-versed in attitude measurement, rating scale development, survey questionnaire design, not to mention a solid working knowledge of sampling methods. I know how to size up research issues, apply univariate and multivariate measurement techniques, program the analysis, set up statistical tables to display the major findings, interpret the results, and write a clear report summarizing those findings.
I've also written funding proposals for a number of consulting firms that bid on government contracts. Thus, I consider myself able to express myself and have a solid command of grammar. I've given seminars and invited luncheon speaker talks on using SPSS. For several organizations I've been a technical resource on research methods, including SPSS use, to fellow employees, and served as a methodology advisor on two doctoral dissertation committees.
On the side, I do a lot of volunteer work: I have experience singing in two choruses and have written press releases for a nonprofit organization for a number of years. I was the varsity basketball game PA announcer at City College of New York for 7 years, and for 13 years swimming/diving meet announcer summers and winters at local recreation club and high school meets. I also narrated a nationally distributed video on dealing with hate crimes. I've tutored first grade reading (to a student whose second language was English, first language Spanish). I'm proud that he definitely benefited from my working with him.
