I am currently at Iowa State University pursuing a PhD in Statistics. I have worked as a teaching assistant and as an instructor for two semesters and am currently a research assistant in the Center for Survey Statistics and Methodology (CSSM) here at ISU. My dissertation research concerns measurement error and nonresponse error in surveys of physical activity. To summarize, I’m working on developing models that account and adjust for errors that arise when people report on their own physical activity. By Summer 2010 I hope to be done with school and on the job market!
