This site is primarily designed to provide easy, free access to the research articles with which I have been involved. Open-access is an important part of the free-exchange of ideas, both theoretical and empirical. The Internet brings to us the ability to easily exchange information at virtually no marginal cost, and we should use that ability to disseminate knowledge as much as possible.
I have had the pleasure of working on some great research projects in my short career. Included in my curriculum vitae is a list of some select research projects on which I have worked in the last few years. I have several years of experience working on funded research projects, including with a variety of approaches to data gathering, such as mail-based, in-person, and Internet-based surveys. If you have an idea for a new research project, please feel free to contact me. Large-scale projects can be accommodated through the Kercher Center for Social Research at Western Michigan University. For smaller projects, one-on-one consulting is also available.
