Leslie Ann Shaw Cornell University, USA

Leslie A. Shaw received her PhD in psychology from the University of Kansas, specifically in quantitative psychology. During graduate school, she worked on a variety of projects from university class enrollment, alumni donations, community policing, and self-determination. She also taught statistical computing labs and introductory statistics in a team-teaching format. The self-determination research led to more opportunities at the Beach Center on Disabilities and Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities to contribute to research on the Supports Intensity Scale, both adult and child versions, and the Self-Determination Inventory: Self Report. After graduation, she held a postdoctoral position at the Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities, where she also taught a class each semester in the quantitative psychology program. She is now a research associate at the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability in the ILR School at Cornell University. She has coauthored more than 20 articles to date, and she serves as a statistical consultant for the journal Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
