Welcome to my repository of professional and personal interests. In general, you’ll find links to research methodology, statistical, and computer related material below.
I am a social scientist by training but my interests cover a much broader area than simply social science. Overlapping areas in health services research, measurement, research methodology, data analysis, and computational algorithms are just a few that currently interest me. I also actively read, discuss, and write about general science and public policy related to these areas.

I am involved in several research and social science projects. My general interests are in merging technology with social programming to positively affect current social problems. The projects listed on this site tend to be long-standing and ongoing projects that require different skills - many I do not possess. If you are interested in helping on any of these projects, please do no hesitate to email me.
The link above will take you to a comprehensive list of all my presentations. The list also contains links to the slides in pdf format. Please feel free to download any presentation.
In my limited free time, I relax in sitting in with my wife and son. When time permits, I am a self-styled hardware and software hacker. I do not restrict my hacking to just computers but, to my wife’s displeasure, extend meddling to home automation, home remodelling, and general tinkering. My dad, brother, and I were all trained as mechanical engineers and we all remain attracted to mechanical processes including sailing, computing, skiing/snowboarding, and various forms of exercise. My personal interests page lists all my extra-curricular activities and related links.
