Research Scientist and Training Director Christine Leibbrand Takes up New Position with Office of Planning and Budgeting
CSDE Research Scientist Christine Leibbrand has taken up a new position with the UW’s Office of Planning and Budgeting as an Institutional Data Analyst.  Christine served as CSDE’s Statistical Demographer and Training Director from June 2020 until the present.  Much of her time in this role was spent on zoom, but we still benefited from her wonderfully positive approach to all types of engagement. She made a huge difference in a brief time. Christine ably organized our scientific workshops, excellently managed our certificate program, and provided outstanding statistical demography consulting to many individuals and projects. We will miss her, but we're happy for her in this next career opportunity.  We hope we can entice her to return and share her research findings in the near future!

CSDE Welcomes Dr. Jessica Godwin as Interim Statistical Demographer and Training Director

Newly minted statistics PhD Jessica Godwin joins CSDE in an interim position as a statistical demographer and training director.  We are REALLY lucky to continue to benefit from her statistical prowess and outstanding mentoring skills. Jessica Godwin’s dissertation developed new spatial, demographic and statistical methods for estimating under five mortality.  This work, conducted with CSDE Affiliate Jon Wakefield, recently informed the UN’s new estimation methods.  Jessica has a suite of outstanding statistical and demographic methodological skills to bring to any research project.  Additionally, Jessica is already familiar with CSDE, having been a trainee and fellow.  This means CSDE will benefit from her presence, at the very least, in terms of both continuity and good ideas for improving the quality of our training program.  Welcome Jessica!
