ResearchING For tomorrow.

I'm a forward, strategic thinker who leverages rigorous scientific mixed-methods research to inform products at the edges of innovation.

My research spans quantitative and qualitative methods. On the quant side, I specialize in quasi-/experimental studies, big data analytics, surveys, and psychometrics among others. I also have a broad basis in qual — I have conducted hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews, field observation, and ethnography in highly technical domains. I also have years of experience analyzing artifacts and performing microgenetic analysis of human behavior (check out my work on gestures in ML/A.I. and healthcare).

My research moves beyond design thinking to leverage design-based research to reveal what people think and what gets them to change.

I hold a Ph.D. in the Learning Sciences from the University of Illinois-Chicago.
