I am a Survey Methodologist and Applied Statistician with interests in interviewer effects, interviewer-respondent interaction, survey falsification, paradata, and modeling of complex survey data; as such, these interests relate to many areas of population research and demography. I am currently working with Prof. Sonalde Desai and Prof. Feinian Chen to design and implement the 3rd wave of the India Human Development Survey (IHDS3). IHDS3 will also be interviewing migrant panelists. I am using this aspect to study possible discrepancies between remittance information reported by migrants and those reported by their root households, and implement methods to reduce such discrepancies.
