Welcome!

My name is John P. Harden, PhD. I am a consultant and data scientist in the NYC area!

I have an advanced understanding of statistical analysis and machine learning, qualitative research methods, and end-to-end surveys and experiments. I am a skilled communicator, project lead, and mentor. I have additional experience in vendor management, business consulting, presentations, data storytelling, dashboard creation, negotiating, and project management. I am advanced in Python, R, SQL, Tableau, and Qualtrics. You can find my GitHub at https://github.com/JohnHarden91.

My published academic research leveraged mixed-methods approaches to explain how narcissism impacts strategic decision-making and bargaining. My teaching focused on the intersection of data science, psychology, and strategic behavior.

I just completed my role as a lead researcher at Dartmouth College's Dickey Center. Before earning my PhD in Political Science with a focus on International Relations and Psychology from Ohio State University, I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science with a focus on International Relations and Finance from City University of New York: Hunter College.
