teaching in the Sociology Department at the University
Mannheim. I am also employed
as a Senior
Researcher at the Institute for
Employment Research (Instituts fuer Arbeitsmarkt- und Berufsforschung,
IAB) in Nuremberg, Germany. And, I am a member of Frauke
Kreuter's Working Group at the Institute for Statistics at Ludwig
Maximilian University in Munich.
In addition, I do statistical consulting work on topics of sampling, weighting and coverage issues. In 2012, I worked with the World Bank on a survey of Pastoralists in the Afar region of Ethiopia.
My recent publications include:
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.
