I use a Delphi-based facilitation approach to drive my continuous git-based deployment while developing benchmarks and refining metrics. I have developed SQL-based performance monitoring dashboards and the supporting infrastructure (cloud-based multidimensional data warehouse based on electronic health record systems alongside operational, financial, and other metadata).
Mixed methods researcher
Big data is one source of insight, through statistics and quasi-experimental approaches, that can explore outcomes alongside business benchmarks. However, other approaches are often needed to tell the whole story.
I'm trained in focus groups and one-on-one interviews, including usability testing. I was lead qualitative analyst on work receiving a North American Primary Care Research Group Patient Choice Award.
I've presented to audiences of 30+ on original research findings and study design at national conferences like the National Collaborative for Improving PrimAry Care Through Industrial and Systems Engineering. I've taught small groups how to use qualitative and quantitative methods, research strategy, and collaborative writing.
I was syndicated by over 100+ news sites and wires, including Thomson Reuters, LexisNexis, and The New York Times. I covered alternative energy markets, clean technology, and corporate social responsibility. I also wrote some magazine articles and edited non-profit newsletters. A few articles are available here.
