Over nearly 20 years as a Research Assistant, Research Analyst, Senior Research Analyst, and Senior Research Associate, Lisa Strycker has helped conduct more than a dozen health-related studies, including research relating to chronic illness management, lifestyle change, worksite health, adolescent physical activity and substance use, and food portion control. She is experienced in conducting assessment studies and randomized trials with a variety of at-risk and underserved populations, including older adults with type 2 diabetes, Latinas with type 2 diabetes, and overweight adults. Along with colleagues Dr. Deborah J. Toobert and Dr. Russell E. Glasgow, Ms. Strycker helped develop the Chronic Illness Resources Survey (CIRS) to measure the use of social-environmental resources to support dietary, physical activity, and other health behaviors. She is a highly experienced data manager/analyst with specific experience in the analysis of Web-generated data and with expertise in specialized analytical techniques for longitudinal data and mixed methods. Ms. Strycker coauthored An Introduction to Latent Variable Growth Curve Modeling as part of Lawrence Erlbaum Associates’ Quantitative Methodology Series. She has done substantive and methodological work in disease prevention and management and has a proven record of contributing to successful research in the areas of chronic illness management and lifestyle behavior change.
