I coordinate the Program Evaluation and Research master’s degree program and work closely with several other programs including the Educational Psychology doctoral program and the Ph.D. in Education program.

I moved with my family from Los Angeles, CA to Morgantown, WV in 2005. Morgantown is continuing to be a wonderful place for my wife, Sharleen, and I to raise our 5 children. After spending time with my family, my second most fulfilling role is working with graduate students to help them develop research and evaluation skills. I teach courses related to research methodology and analyzing data across the spectrum from qualitative through quantitative approaches and most everything in between. I developed and launched the Program Evaluation and Research Center as a way to get students engaged in real-world research and evaluation, support faculty pursuing external funding, and provide service to the state and region through development, research, and evaluation of high quality programs.

I pursue a diverse research agenda in (a) teacher education and action research, (b) the development of mathematical and scientific knowledge across the lifespan, (c) online delivery methods and pedagogical approaches to university instruction, and (d) research methodology, program evaluation, and data analysis (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodological) for studies in developmental, educational, and counseling contexts. If you are interested in more details, including articles I have published and grant funded projects I am engaged in, please follow the link above to my vita.
