to Present Talk on Using Statistics
To Improve Business Decisions March 29 at MCCC
Windsor, N.J. - Statistical analyst, Dr. James R. Kenyon,
will discuss the use of statistics to improve business outcomes
in his talk, "Using Statistical Thinking to Improve
Business Decisions," on Tuesday, March 29 at noon
at Mercer County Community College. This free lecture will
be presented in the Communication Building, Room 108, on the
Windsor campus, the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton
Road. The talk is part of Mercer's Distinguished Lecture Series
for the spring 2011 semester.
Measurement and data analysis have been widely used in the
fields of forensic science, disease detection, biotechnology,
pharmaceutical research and development, and other biological
applications to improve decision-making and impact an organization's
bottom line. With his 10 years as a principal biostatistician
at Bristol Myers Squibb, Kenyon will draw on his expertise
to shed light on the ways that non-scientists and non-statisticians
can apply statistical thinking to solve problems, a process
that includes both logic and analytical reasoning.
previous positions, Kenyon served as a statistical consultant for
U.S. Airways in Arlington, Va., as a senior statistician at Response
Analysis in Princeton, as a professor at the University of Southern
Maine, and as a mathematical statistician for the U.S. Census Bureau
in Washington, D.C.
Kenyon now teaches mathematics as an adjunct professor at MCCC and
the Drexel University College of Medicine. He earned his Ph.D. and
master's degrees in Mathematical Statistics from the University
of Connecticut and his bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Bates
