Research Projects – Principal Investigator/Researcher

“IMPACT AC Model Validation”, July 2012-December 2012, Validation of continuation rate forecast models for transition to IMPACT Manpower and Personnel decision support system.

“Incentives,” September 2007-September 2010.  Project objective:  Specification and validation of various pecuniary and non-pecuniary incentives to aid in career choice.

“A Market Approach to the Labor Allocation Problem: The Use and Valuation of Job Incentives,” September 2000 – July 2004.  This research effort proposes to model a flexible incentive system where the Navy and each individual reveal his or her valuation of various job attributes using a competitive market setting.  This research allows the Navy to ascertain the benefits of using a market setting as a means to allocate labor resources.

“Models of Navy Compensation and Personnel Behavior,” September 2000 – Present.  Primary research objective is to develop a forecasting system that will be capable of (1) calculating the impact of compensation on retention and (2) providing cost and benefit data on any changes to the compensation system.

“Teams, Strategic Games and Optimal Outcomes,” October 1999 – December 2003.  Using experimental methods, this research examines the impact of team size and how information uncertainties affect a team’s ability to make an optimal decision.

“Manpower Implications of Advertising to Target Markets,” September 1999 – March 2000.  Primary research objective was to audit the Navy’s current advertising strategy and campaign and to propose alternative measures of advertising effectiveness.

“The Impact of Computer and Communications Technology on Recruiter Productivity,” September 1999 – September 2000.  Using non-parametric analysis, the objective of this research was to assess the relative effectiveness of technology, quantify the productivity gains attributed to technology, and assess the impact of technology on recruiter quality of life.

“How Robust is the Theory of Consumer Choice in the Face of Discrete Goods with Multiple Attributes: An Experimental Approach,” October 1998 – September 2000.  Developed a web based simulation program to test various hypotheses of consumer choice.  The research methodology is economics-based experiments; a novel approach to Navy manpower and personnel problems.
