DSDR welcomes Colleen and Erica to the project

The DSDR team is pleased to welcome two new research assistants, Colleen Smythe and Erica Gehringer, to the project. Both Erica and Colleen are recent graduates of the University of Michigan with degrees in Sociology.

Erica plans to take a gap year from school to gain research experience through the ICPSR before applying into a Sociology Ph.D program. She wishes to pursue a career in family and adoption research.

Colleen is considering pursuing a Ph.D in sociology, and hopes her experience at ICPSR will help her conduct her own survey research in the future.

Both Colleen and Erica are excited to contribute to the project and learn new skills in research and data management.
