Biography

Gail received a BA and MS in Biometrics from the University of Minnesota and a PhD in Biostatistics from the University of North Carolina. After graduation she spent three years working at Quintiles, Inc., a contract research organization that helps biotechnology companies and pharmaceutical companies get their newly designed drugs approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). She spent a year at West Virginia University, Department of Statistics, then three years at the Duke Clinical Research Institute teaching and consulting and then six years at the University of North Carolina in the Department of Biostatistics. In 2005, Gail joined the faculty at Husson and in 2010 became the Director of Institutional Research. In addition to her administration and teaching tasks, she serves as a consultant for students and faculty at Husson who need help designing, conducting and/or analyzing their research projects. Gail also serves as the biostatistical consultant for the Department of Clinical Research at Eastern Maine Medical Center and as an adjunct professor for the School for Community and Population Health at the University of New England and an external graduate faculty member at the University of Maine.

Professional Statement

I encourage students to be active learners. Ask questions in class, come by and visit me in my office, and/or discuss class materials with other students. Find examples of what you are learning in the classroom, outside of the classroom. To succeed in college, learning must take place inside and outside the classroom.

Research

Gail has been consulting with health professionals for over 20 years. Her expertise is in clinical trials, categorical data analysis and online instruction. She currently consults with medical professionals and faculty from Husson University, University of New England, University of Maine, University of North Carolina and Eastern Maine Medical Center on a regular basis. Gail has successfully collaborated with 15 different principal investigators on 22 grants over the last 21 years. As a public health professional she is particularly interested in research that concentrates on affordable ways to get a large amount of individuals to change their behavior in a positive way. Studying the relationship between providers and patients is an effective way to do this as patients with chronic disease visit their health care provider regularly and the provider can use these visits to educate their patients. As Director of Institutional Research Gail is working on providing more data analysis results to more people to encourage more data driven, informed decision making as well as increase communication and awareness around campus.
