Dr. Robin Gaster

Dr. Gaster provided analytic support and expertise to the TechLink team at Montana State University. TechLink had been engaged by the Department of Defense to undertake a comprehensive survey of Phase II SBIR and STTR awardees since 1995. The survey opened opportunities for new kinds of analysis by providing a vastly expanded data set.

Using methodologies piloted in the Surveyor’s Dilemma, which were based on previous large scale TechLink surveys of SBIR awardees at Navy and Air Force, Dr. Gaster helped the TechLink team develop a more robust and comprehensive assessment of program outcomes.
