What's Up? I'm a Research Associate Professor in the Michigan Program in Survey Methodology, located within the Survey Research Center at the Institute for Social Research on the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor campus. I also provide statistical consultation, teach workshops, and help to develop research grant proposals as part of the Consulting for Statistics, Computing, and Analytics Research (CSCAR) team. In addition to these academic affiliations, I serve on the Executive Council of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), specifically as the Associate Chair of the Education Committee, I serve on the Technical Advisory Committee of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and I am the Faculty Director of the Junior Fellow Program of the Joint Program in Survey Methodology.
