Along with Brad Edwards, I am chair of the 2015 International Total Survey Error Conference, to be held in Baltimore in September, 2015.
In addition, I do statistical consulting work on topics of sample design, weighting and coverage issues.

I have a Ph. D. in Survey Methodology from the Joint Program in Survey Methodology (JPSM) at the University of Maryland. My dissertation explored coverage in area-probability surveys, specifically undercoverage and overcoverage of housing units in housing unit listing. Data collection for my dissertation was supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Maryland Population Research Center, and the Charles Cannell Fund in Survey Methodology, among others.
When I'm not working, I like to run, bike and swim. My fastest half-marathon time is 1:47.
