Terry plays a key role in analyzing the results of research findings and working with the project teams to interpret data and develop reports. With over ten years of experience in higher education research, Terry brings a high level of expertise to each project. He directs all project work after raw research data have come in from the field and works with other members of the research team on high-level statistical analyses for a wide range of projects, including large-scale survey research, econometric financial aid and retention analyses, and analyses of other client and secondary data. He has particular expertise in coordinating the firm’s advanced simulated decision modeling (SDM) process and results for all major client studies.

He has worked on large-scale research projects for a wide range of clients, including colleges and universities — such as Dartmouth College, University of Chicago, Claremont McKenna College, the University of Richmond, Haverford College, the University of Michigan and the University of Virginia — and independent schools — such as The Buckley School, Woodberry Forest School and Milton Hershey School. Terry also plays a key role in conducting data analyses for studentPOLL, the firm’s national omnibus poll surveying college-bound high school students about their attitudes and behavior regarding the college search process.

In addition to his role in data analysis for client projects, Terry plays important internal roles at Art & Science Group as well, overseeing short-term hires and internships for the research team and managing the firm’s IT needs. 

Before joining the firm, Terry served as a research assistant and interviewer for the American Institutes for Research (AIR), where he played a key role in a longitudinal survey of Baltimore third graders focused on analyzing the effectiveness of a classroom-based intervention program implemented in several first grade classrooms in the city.
