Robert Nisbet, an American sociologist, received his doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley and taught at Columbia University before moving to the University of California at Riverside. Known for his fine scholarship and conservative ideology, Nisbet has been a consultant to such groups as the American Enterprise Institute and has been a libertarian promoter of cultural pluralism. Nisbet has done considerable work in researching the history and development of Western sociological thought. His areas of personal interest have also included the classical social theorists, modernization and social thought, and community and society.

Dr. Robert Nisbet was trained initially in Ecology and Ecosystems Analysis. He has over 30 years' experience in complex systems analysis and modeling, most recently as a Researcher (University of California, Santa Barbara). In business, he pioneered the design and development of configurable data mining applications for retail sales forecasting, and Churn, Propensity-to-buy, and Customer Acquisition in Telecommunications Insurance, Banking, and Credit industries. In addition to data mining, he has expertise in data warehousing technology for Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) operations, Business Intelligence reporting, and data quality analyses. He is lead author of the "Handbook of Statistical Analysis & Data Mining Applications" (Academic Press, 2009), and a co-author of "Practical Text Mining" (Academic Press, 2012). Currently, he serves as an Instructor in the University of California, Irvine Predictive Analytics Certification Program, teaching online courses in Effective Data preparation, and co-teaching Introduction to Predictive Analytics.
