    10+ years of experience scrubbing, analyzing and presenting data. I have worked as a data/financial analyst and consultant for IT companies, healthcare systems, and education agencies. I specialize in extracting trends and insights from data and presenting those insights in a way that helps businesses and managers make decisions.

I am known for my strong attention to detail and for high levels of customer service. I believe my strength is finding a balance between technical skills (providing strong, accurate analysis) and understanding business need (applying that analysis well, given unique industry and organization). Education: I have an MBA with a specialization in Corporate Finance. I have completed my CFA Level 1 exam. I have studied data analytics and data techniques through professional experiences for 10+ years.

    I'm a quantitative research scientist who enjoys forming hypotheses, designing studies to test hypotheses, working with data, building statistical models, conducting statistical tests, and producing fully customized graphs/visualizations to show the results of quantitative research. I also enjoy creating computer simulations and building R Shiny apps. I usually do most of my work in R, though I have also used Stata, Python, Excel, and SPSS in the past. I did a PhD at Stony Brook University, where I conducted quantitative research in political psychology and political economics and where I received extensive training in statistics and methods of data analysis. My coursework included basic statistics and probability, experiment design, econometrics, linear and non-linear regression models (including binomial models, multinomial models, ordered models, count models, censored and truncated models), maximum-likelihood estimation, time-series analysis, experiment design, causal inference, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity, structural equation modeling, factor analysis, game theory, computational modeling and simulations, Bayesian statistics, analysis of big data, automated text analysis, machine learning, and data visualization. For several years I also taught university courses in math, statistics, econometrics, and quantitative research methods for social science. I taught students how to use R, Stata, and Excel for data analysis. I taught both undergraduate students and doctoral students. Please see my website for detailed descriptions of the courses I have taught. I also have experience publishing my own quantitative research in a peer-reviewed journal as a solo author. In my freelance consulting work, I have advised clients on study design and statistical analysis for projects in many different fields of research, including psychology, sociology, economics, linguistics, mental health, medical treatment and recovery, business hiring practices, predictive modeling of asset prices, consumer preferences for market research, and others. - James Cragun

    Ph.D., Organizational Psychology. Talent, Organizational Development, and Survey specialist. I have 5+ years of experience working in talent and organizational development, though many of the skills I developed came from my 7 previous years in marketing. My goal is to leverage science and research to help you achieve your goals in a clear and applicable way. Within the past couple of years, I've worked on projects for Accenture within their career architecture, assessment, and recruiting teams. I have also worked on projects for McGill University, Yaamava (previously San Manuel) Casino, Denny's, Teachable, and Workboard, among others. I hold a Ph.D. and MA in Organizational Psychology from Claremont Graduate University and a BA in English and Consumer Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. I am here to offer evidence-based solutions and help you achieve your goals. Some of my skills and work experiences include: • Conducting and analyzing survey data (using an array of survey software programs and analyzing data via R or Excel) • Interviewing and leading focus groups (and using qualitative thematic analysis to derive relevant and actionable themes) • Assessing/developing leadership and employees (engagement, wellbeing, strengths, burnout, etc.) • Spearheading program evaluations (using an array of methods, including but not limited to document/website review, surveys, interviews, observations) • Creating workshops • Drafting powerpoints • Writing reports I am visually oriented and geared to make information easy to digest, so I will make sure that your solutions target your intended audience. About me: I initially pursued a career in marketing. I worked as a strategy consultant in healthcare, then pivoted into a tech innovation startup specializing in AI-driven, gamified e-commerce products. After 7 years of marketing in NYC, even in a director role, I realized that while I still loved business and psychology, and I very much loved my current job, I just wasn’t interested in selling products. Call me naive and idealistic, but I wanted to make an imprint on people's lives and help make the world a better place by creating a less stressed/burnt-out workforce. I envision a world where people thrive at their work, finding it engaging and energizing, and I want to help companies create the optimal space to make that a reality. To that end, I shifted my career trajectory and shifted towards organizational behavior. I love the consulting projects I've done and the clients I've worked with over these past few years. I completed my MA and PhD studying Positive Organizational Psychology. My research focuses on: • employee engagement • healthy work-life balance • burnout prevention • remote work • high-quality connections • virtual teams • leadership development • viewpoint diversity and more.
