Jacob M. Kolman M.A. leverages a background in English literature, analytic philosophy (including research ethics and epistemology of science), and work experience in tutoring and college instruction to support interdisciplinary STEM research teams in the healthcare industry and academia. He currently supports researchers at both a top-ranked hospital research institute in Texas (Houston Methodist Center for Outcomes Research) and a Tier 1 research university (Texas A&M University, at the Applied Cognitive Ergonomics Laboratory).
His services include in-house technical writing, copy editing, and pre-submission review for documents including grant proposals, IRB applications, peer-reviewed journal manuscripts, and conference materials. He also assists with systematic literature reviews, qualitative research (e.g., thematic analysis of text and interviews), and skill-building tutorials primarily in writing techniques and time management. He also occasionally publishes his own scholarly works in philosophy and medical ethics.
