Free Services

OK, I've been a huge fanboy of GNU/Linux and GNOME for about 10 years now, and during that time I have also been a hobbyist programmer. But I have finally realised that I will never have the mad skillz to contribute in any meaningful way to GNOME.

During that time I have also considered other ways to contribute, but I don't seem to have the time, motivation and energy to write quality documentation or provide friendly help to newbies on IRC. I work in a University and teach Marketing in general and Marketing Research in particular, so I joined the GNOME Marketing group, but I don't think I have been very helpful there either.

So now I am going to try something new.

Free Research Consulting and Data Analysis

I love research design and data analysis. I adore multivariate statistics. This stuff is recreational for me (as well as paying the bills). So, if you are planning to do some research and are unsure how to proceed, drop me a line. Or if you have some data and can't get your head around:
  • t tests
  • Chi-square tests
  • Multiple regression
  • Logistic regression
  • Factor analysis
  • Cluster analysis
  • Multidimensional scaling
  • Conjoint analysis
  • Choice modelling
  • Structural equation modelling
  • ...
Drop me a line. I'd love to contribute to GNOME in some meaningful way.
