About Me

My name is Michael Flynn and I am the principal and chief analyst at Prior Analytics. I have 15 years of experience working as a researcher, applied statistician, and data analyst. I enjoy working with other people to brainstorm new ideas and to help them solve problems. You can find a copy of my academic CV here.

During my time as a researcher I’ve dealt with many different kinds of questions and research problems, and my work requires that I be able to connect technical and specialized research skills with communication skills that make my research accessible to a general audience—whether that be grant funding agencies or policymakers. My goal is to bring the skills that I’ve developed over my career to assist others in their own projects.
