Gene is currently the Director of Assessment and Research at OMAD and a former Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs in the College of Letters and Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a diversity officer first and data professional second. Gene’s service and graduate work (including his Ph.D. dissertation on TRIO Student Support Services back in 1999) was on first-generation, low-income, and historically underrepresented population groups since 1995. Gene ran the McNair Scholars Program in both UW-Madison and UW-Seattle, which is a Ph.D. preparatory program to successfully transition first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students from BA/BS to Ph.D. programs via undergraduate research, seminars, and pre-graduate advising. He has taught psychology and statistics, and supported Ph.D. dissertations (Including graduate students in I-School, Education, and Nursing in both UWs), since his days in graduate school in the 90s to the present day. Gene loves simplifying and clarifying “messy and complex” information examining patterns, but also identifying exceptions to those various patterns.
