Graduate Student

My research interests include finite population sampling techniques, including sampling of hard to find populations, small area estimation, imputation of survey data, analysis of missing data, causal inference, longitudinal data analysis, and analysis of massive datasets.  I am also the owner of a statistical consulting firm called The Stochastic Group, Inc. in Atlanta, GA.  I have been a statistical consultant and survey methodologist with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since 2003.  I currently work in the National Center for Emerging & Zoonotic Infectious Diseases.

I received my undergraduate degrees in Statistics and Political Science from the University of Michigan, in 2000.  While at Michigan, I worked from 1997 until 2000 at the Institute for Social Research's Survey Methodology Program at the Survey Research Center where I discovered my interests in surveys and sampling techniques.
