Welcome to my personal web page!
Quick bio: I am a Senior Research Methodologist at NORC at the University of Chicago. I received both my Ph.D. and M.S. from the Survey Research and Methodology Program (SRAM) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and my B.S. from the Statistics Department in Hacettepe University.
To date at NORC, I have been involved in research related to communication and cognition in surveys, web, mail, and phone survey implementation and design, interviewer effect on data quality, measurement, non-response, and coverage errors in multi-mode surveys, and use of innovative technologies in survey data collection.
Prior to joining NORC, I worked as a research assistant at the Gallup Research Center (GRC) and was a teaching assistant at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). During my time at GRC, I was involved in several projects which addressed methodological issues related to survey data quality and total survey error - specifically, communication and cognition in surveys, event history calendar methodology, interviewer effect on data quality, cross-cultural survey methodology, and survey data analyses.
In a nutshell my broad research interests include: Methodological Issues in Surveys, Questionnaire Design and Survey Implementation, Survey Communication, the Use of Web and Technology in Surveys, Internet Sampling and Recruitment Approaches, Generalized Multi-level Modeling, Longitudinal and Cross-sectional Surveys.
