    By training, I am a political sociology and social movements scholar. In recent years, I have done some exploratory work on religious affiliation in the United States, and specifically on the changing influence of predictors of religious non-affiliation over time.  I work with several quantitative modeling strategies, especially OLS regression and logistic regression. I have for many years been teaching courses in introductory social statistics and applied quantitative research methods, as well as courses on data collection, survey design, and opinion-polling basics. I've worked extensively with the statistical packages SYSTAT and SPSS, and I have a working familiarity with Stata and DataDesk. I also have expertise in accessing and using "big data sets" - publicly available survey and/or government-sponsored data sources. I am always happy to schedule appointments to help students and colleagues with their work, so please contact me via email ( if I might be of assistance.
