I am a contract researcher. My background combines the practical side of an MBA with the training of a PhD social scientist. The business training allows me to understand the corporate environment of research projects and how to tailor the results to this setting. My training in the social sciences gives me a wide variety of methods to draw upon and the depth of understanding to make these methods truly useful.

Working with qualitative data I've spent five plus years writing and analyzing survey data from online, phone and in person surveys as well as numerous research projects that have involved standard questionnaire formats as well as network based formats. My experience with qualitative data comes from academic fieldwork conducted in Russia, Mexico and Ecuador as well as a number of professional studies in the U.S. that involved capturing and understanding rich ethnographic style interviews.
