I try my best to use my quantitative training to help other researchers. I feel this allows me to have a broader impact in science besides my own research questions, and helps others get the most out of their research questions. I have helped Ph.D. and M.A. students in political science and psychology analyze data for their thesis research on multiple topics ranging from personality research to political protest behavior of Sri Lanken immigrants. Currently, I am a research associate at the NYU Langone Medical Center and aid public health researchers with data analysis for their projects on sexual and health behaviors in New York City.
Below are some recent projects I've consulted on:
- Gozlan, B., Elbel, B., Regan, S., Zhang, J., Brady, W.J., & Duncan, D. (in prep). Weight Perception among NYC Public Housing Residents: Do Neighborhood Obesity Prevalence and Activity Space Size Influence Weight Perception?
- Duncan, D, Goedel, W.C., Stults, C., Brady, W.J., Brooks, F., Blakely, J & Hagen, D. (Submitted - Annals of Behavioral Medicine). A Geosocial-Networking Smartphone Application Study of Intimate Partner Violence, Substance Use, and Sexual Risk Behaviors Among Gay, Bisexual and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men.
- Duncan, D. et al., (2015). Feasibility and Acceptability of Global Positioning System (GPS). Methods to Study the Spatial Contexts of Substance Use and Sexual Risk Behaviors Among Young Men Who Have Sex With Men in NYC: A P18 Cohort Sub-study. Population Health Metrics.
