Services I Offer

Dissertation Consulting
As a graduate student, you have spent years developing expertise to further your career in your chosen area of study… but that usually does not involve becoming an expert statistician.

Yet the preparation of a successful dissertation involves the application of complex and expert-level statistical analysis methods that your standard research method or statistics courses did not prepare you for… because they were never meant to.

The committee handling your dissertation understands you are not a statistician and many universities and mentors will in fact urge you to get expert statistical consulting services to aid in the dissertation process.

Quantitative Consulting
As a student, your area of expertise is not statistics. Yet the preparation of a successful dissertation involves conducting effective research, analyzing data and presenting the results ... all of which require a high level of mathematical and statistical expertise.

Hiring a statistical consultant lets you focus on becoming an expert in your field of study rather than try to master statistics.I can help you develop a successful dissertation from proposal to defense and can offer assistance with any or all of these steps: research methodology and design, sample size calculation and justification, statistical techniques, validity and reliability of results, and interpretation of results.
Grant Proposals
The proper preparation and presentation of your grant proposal is essential to getting the funding you need for your research project and to further your career. I’ve been through the process many times myself and I know how frustrating it can be. With my experience I can help you avoid many of the most common errors that lead to grant rejection.

Your grant proposal had a good chance of rejection if you cannot provide a convincing and compelling argument backed up with a plan for solid research methodology and expert level statistical analysis. In fact, the number one reason all grants get rejected is because of a poorly designed research plan, inappropriate methodology and lack of specific detail on the statistical treatment to be used.

Let Me Introduce Myself
Peter RlomI specialize in helping graduate students and researchers in psychology, education, economics and the social sciences with all aspects of statistical analysis. Many new and relatively uncommon statistical techniques are available, and these may widen the field of hypotheses you can investigate. Graphical techniques are often misapplied, but, done correctly, they can summarize a great deal of information in a single figure. I can help with writing papers, writing grant applications, and doing analysis for grants and research.

Specialties: Regression, logistic regression, cluster analysis, statistical graphics, quantile regression.
