Research Statement

I am a survey methodologist primarily interested in experimental research to identify methods of improving response rates for web and mixed-mode surveys. I participate in survey study design, questionnaire development and assessment, and survey implementation strategies. I am also investigating how survey recruitment and retention methods apply to other types of studies. I am also interested in research to understand and alleviate health disparities, particularly in terms of cancer.
