Alumni Zack Almquist Honored with NSF Career Award

Zack Almquist, UCI Alumni and assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Washington, has been honored with a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for his project entitled, "CAREER: Measuring and Modeling the Multi-Modal Networks and Demographics of People Experiencing Homelessness". The CAREER award is the most prestigious award given by the NSF in support of early-career faculty members who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar through outstanding research, excellent teaching, and the integration of education and research. This five-year award will provide $500,000 of funding to support Dr. Almquist’s research into integrating recent developments in survey sampling and estimation (e.g. respondent driven sampling or network scale-up methods) to obtain population counts, demographic rates, social network information, and information on people's experience while homeless from online and offline sources.
