I am a Professor of Education and Applied Quantitative Methods at the University of Maine, where I am also involved with the Maine Education Policy Research Institute.  I also serve as an informatics consultant for the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program (EHDI) in the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  You can see a video of a recent presentation I gave on EHDI work nationally as part of the monthly US CDC Grand Rounds series.

My primary research interests are in Developmental Epidemiology and Biobehavioral Informatics.  My work in developmental epidemiology focuses on educational outcomes and developmental disabilities in children, while my work in biobehavioral informatics focuses on electronic data linkage and datasystem design.  Common to all of this work is a strong interest in Quantitative Methods.   

I am also interested in STEM Education, particularly technology-enhanced math education through systems such as ASSISTments, and more recently with middle and high school computer-science education.

I should note that I have a fairly elaborate web-site. Reflecting this, links and buttons in my web-site referring to "home" point to this, my "home" page.
