PROGRAMMING & MODELING PLATFORMS

I have used the following tools in research, consulting, and/or coursework: Python, R, NetLogo, MATLAB/Octave, LaTeX, Gephi, Anthropac, MAXQDA, Anylogic (Java), Analytica, UCINET, ORA, SPSS, Excel.


TUTORING AND COACHING

Since 2011 I have been tutoring grad and undergrad students through hired appointments, volunteering, and as a part of my academic duties. Topics: evolutionary modeling, network analysis, programming, statistics, research methods, research writing, qualitative data collection and analysis.

In October 2011 I served as a public speaking coach and event organizer for a teach-in called “Economic Solutions Worth Spreading” hosted by the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics.

I occasionally give beginner lessons in Argentine Tango.


CONSULTING

I have consulted on projects with research labs, small businesses, and nonprofits, as an analyst, modeler, and writer. On the research side, I have done network analysis, data mining, agent-based modeling, qualitative transcription and coding, and other kinds of analytical work. On the organizational side, I have focused on strategic planning and evaluation.

Some groups I have worked with include: Social-Ecological Gaming and Simulation Lab, UVM; Transportation Research Center, UVM; Taste of Place Lab, UVM; Nutrition and Food Sciences, UVM; Community Development and Applied Economics, UVM; Complexity and Governance Group, UVM; Vermont EPSCoR; James Lantz, Starry Night Theater; The Bus at 59E59 Theaters NYC and in Topeka, KS; ReSOURCE ReTRAIN/Youthbuild USA.
