About Me

I am a PhD student in Survey Methodology at the University of Michigan. My research focus is mainly concerned with finite population inference for Big Data as large-scale non-probability samples. Currently, I am working as a graduate student research assistant under the supervision of Professor Michael Elliott and Dr. Carol Flannagan at the Survey Research CenterInstitute for Social Research
