My areas of interest include meta-analysis, logistic regression, as well as educational assessment and program evaluation. My collaborative research efforts have resulted in numerous publications that span many different fields of study in education and the social sciences. My community outreach focuses on serving school districts and non-profit agencies throughout the mid-west and northeast and my large-scale program evaluation responsibilities have included work with National MS Society, the Columbiana County Educational Service Center (Evaluation of technology professional development training for teachers and students within impoverished Appalachian school districts in Eastern Ohio) as well as the Portage County Educational Service Center, Ashtabula City Schools, and Medina City Schools (Evaluation of alternative education programs).
