About Me

I consider myself a hardcore statistician with a PhD degree in statistics, having received the honorary professional statistician (P.Stat.) degree from the Statistical Society of Canada in 2017. Working in the field of higher education for the last 25+ years serving as faculty, researcher, consultant, assessment and accreditation specialist, he has a wide range of research publications in statistical quality control, biostatistics, program evaluation, critical care and dementia. I have a strong expertise in educational measurement and database administration, designing data-driven program evaluation skills in psychometric analysis, research design, reliability and validity.

On a more personal note, my hobbies and interests include philately, playing chess, soccer, swimming and a huge passion for teaching complex principles of statistics in a lucid, entertaining way.
