Master's Thesis Project (Final Presentation): Conceived, designed, and conducted original research to test the relationship between the neurotic personality trait and menopausal symptoms with stress and exercise as moderators. Wrote and presented the research proposal for approval to proceed; presented the final results for approval by the thesis committee. Designed and coded a web page for survey participants to inform them about the study’s details, to gain their consent to participate, and then to complete the embedded survey using SurveyMonkey. Recruited participants through social media, analyzed date using SPSS, and wrote and presented results of research data for publication.
Motorcycle Safety Foundation's (MSF) Discovery Project (PDF, 39kb): Directed the operations, both on-site and in-office, for the Discovery Project. The Discovery Project was a longitudinal, multi-million dollar, cooperative research study between MSF and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to test the efficacy of several new motorcycle training courses developed by MSF. I recruited hundreds of participants, processed/organized data, and persuaded participants to return for further testing/training. I also supervised several training personnel, research study evaluators, and administrative staff while conducting research sessions for returning participants. To save money, I devised a system to cut back on the number of required testing/training sessions by calculating participant return rates. Furthermore, I created written study materials and correspondence.
Completed research on correlation between the Big Five Personality Characteristics and Drinking Behaviors(PDF; 921 KB). Invited to present research poster and paper at the 9th Annual Southern California Psychology Conference for Community Colleges.
