While I initially set out to become a child psychologist, I was a little intimidated by the idea of studying statistics. I quickly came to appreciate the power of statistics and psychometrics, however – so much so that I pursued a master’s and Ph.D. in quantitative methods and became an accredited professional statistician.
But the prospect of a career spent writing research papers for an audience of researchers never appealed to me. I was always far more interested in bringing the benefits of these tools and techniques to the people on the ground.
This interest led me to found Parsimony (named for parsimonious statistical models, which are both simple and have great explanatory or predictive power). At Parsimony, I work to provide consultants with top-notch quantitative services that answer their clients’ questions while minimizing complexity, so the results can be put to good use.
With Parsimony, you can trust that the process will be smooth, the work will be top-notch, and the deliverables will be easy for you and your clients to understand.
