About


I draw on formal training in quant and qual methods plus experience in design and development to vertically integrate applied research, from your research question to your final deliverables.

I write grants, manage projects, and do design work for people who do research.

Evidence-based practices inform what we do as researchers and scientists. Similarly, the deliverables we use to convey our ideas and findings should be informed by best practices in communication, data visualization, and web development. Our research is more impactful when we can share it effectively with practitioners and community members who can put it directly to use.

Venn diagram reading: "rigorous analytical training" on the left, "approachable communication and design work" on the right, and "eye-catching, scientifically-sound deliverables" in the intersection.
