I am a Research Analyst and Program Evaluator for the department of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Kansas. I help to collect and analyze data for retention efforts here at KU. Additionally, I perform evaluations of multiple programs within and beyond the department.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in mathematics from West Virginia Wesleyan College, a Master of Science in mathematics from Michigan Technological University, and a (soon to be) Ph.D. in Program Evaluation from Western Michigan University. Additionally, I am currently the director of the Center for Advising Research and Evaluation and the executive editor of the journal Annals of Academic Advising.
I am an avid fan of West Virginia University football and all things Detroit (Lions, Tigers and Red Wings). I'm a very proud father of three children and if and when I get any free time, I am either writing journal articles for publications, working out, listening to the Grateful Dead, attempting to play my acoustic guitar, or watching sports.
Analytical. Deliberative. Strategic.
