My name is Dr. Todd Bottom, and by academic training I am a Community Psychologist, earning my Ph.D. from DePaul University in Chicago in 2014.  I published several peer-reviewed research articles during my doctoral studies, and one even before beginning graduate school.
I have worked in research and academics since 2007 and taught university psychology and statistics courses at DePaul University for three years.  More recently I worked in college institutional research and for a pharma research consulting firm.
In 2018 I left the job market to begin coaching and consulting graduate students students and other professional researchers to help them to accomplish their academic and professional goals more quickly.
Shortly after beginning that independent work I founded Research Learning Center, a division of Change Your Tomorrow Today.  This shift provided me with an opportunity to create many more valuable research materials such as these affordable online courses as a way to support an increased number of students and professionals.
