Academic Profile

Alan Fask began his professional career doing consulting while still in graduate school. He subsequently received his MS in Operations Research and his PhD in Statistics from New York University. He began teaching at Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1973, but continued consulting in Operations, Forecasting, Promotion Response Measurement and Biomedical Statistics for some of the largest corporations in the US, including Novartis, Schering-Plough, Roche, Merck, Adams, Forest and Warner Lambert, as well as Atlantic Health. He has also done expert witness testimony. His research interests reflect his consulting experience, but he has broader interests in experimental and study design.
