Author Biography - Dana K. Keller
Dana K. Keller, PhD, has explored Eastern philosophies for almost five decades, including a journey to China and Tibet. He embraces two very different worlds: the West's scientific approach to knowledge and the East's more intuitive and experiential approach. In The Tao of Statistics, he presents a way that the two worlds can mutually benefit. After supervising the research for over 100 doctoral dissertations, he joined the Delmarva Foundation as its chief statistician. During his seven years there, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services named him as a national resource for the nation's managed care organizations for sampling and research methodology. His almost unique ability to explain statistical and methodological constructs in everyday language has resulted in his being frequently requested as a presenter and technical expert panel member. As president of Halcyon Research, Inc., he continues to bring his ability to explain statistical concepts simply to an ever-widening audience.
