Statistician to Present Talk on Using Statistics
To Improve Business Decisions March 29 at MCCC


3/8/11


West 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 West 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.

In 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 College.
