Email Address:
I am a psychologist (Human experimental, Ph.D., UW 1978) and engineer (Electrical, BSEE, UW 1969). An unusal combination that has enabled me to pursue a variety of careers -- from entrepreneur to research academic. Prior to joining the School of Nursing I was a founding partner of a contract research organization (Staticon - Munich,Germany) that provided statistical consulting and clinical trial execution for multi-national pharmaceutical companies. More recently I've used my statistical and programming skills to support the analysis and data management needs of research projects at the SON and the Center on Human Development and Disability (CHDD).
My recent research interests are centered around the use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging from both a methodological and applied perspective. I am currently developing methods to more accurately model arousal states within an MR experimental context. My applied use of fMRI involves the neuroimaging of grief.
The classes I teach emphasize the effective use of computer tools to solve research data management problems (NMETH 522) and a Computing Fundamentals course (NMETH 528).
