|I am employed
as a Fellow at RTI International. I have a Ph. D. in Survey Methodology from the Joint Program in Survey Methodology (JPSM) at the University of Maryland.
I co-chaired a large international conference on Total Survey Error in September, 2015. The conference monograph, Total Survey Error in Practice was published in 2017 and contains 25 articles from leaders in the survey methods field.
With Edith de Leeuw, I am editing a special issue of the Journal of Official Statistics on the Total Survey Error Framework. The issue will contain a selection of papers from the conference.
I do statistical consulting work on topics of sample design, weighting and coverage issues. I have consulted on several projects with the World Bank.
I have also worked with Statistics without Borders.
