Jerome P. Reiter

Professor of Statistical Science

My primary areas of research include methods for preserving data confidentiality, for handling missing values, for integrating information across multiple sources, and for the analysis of surveys and causal studies. I enjoy collaborating on data analyses with researchers who are not statisticians, particularly in the social sciences and public policy.
