The Survey Research Institute employs a highly trained and experienced team of supervisors to aid in the direction of the day-to-day operations of the facility. Supervisors at SRI have played a vital role in our continued success and organizational growth. In addition to conducting phone interviews, supervisors are responsible for managing the many ongoing projects. Our supervisory staff ensures that interviews are conducted in both a timely and cost-effective manner by making independent decisions and assigning work appropriately. In order to verify the accuracy of data collection, supervisors regularly monitor all phone interviewers.
Suzy joined the SRI team as a research assistant in the fall of 2010 and has spent the subsequent years nurturing her love for all things data. A native of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she swapped her idyllic hometown for the beautiful Finger Lakes region while completing her undergraduate education at Wells College in Aurora, New York. After earning a bachelor's degree in Public Affairs with a special concentration in ethics, politics, and social policy, Suzy decided to continue her ongoing pursuit of knowledge by joining an institution recognized for its impressive research efforts--Cornell University. She appreciates the dynamic and sometimes unpredictable nature of surveying and all of the unique challenges SRI presents. In her spare time, she's been known to read voraciously and explore eclectic music genres.
Soyoung (So for short) joined SRI in the Fall of 2012 when she started attending Cornell University as an undergraduate student. She was majoring in Development Sociology, and minoring in Law. As a Development Sociology major, she learned that there was a lot of data and research involved in this field, as well as for law. Although she plans on attending law school in the fall of 2016, she hopes to pursue the rest of her career at SRI learning more about data collection and most importantly, understanding different opinions by having direct contact with people throughout the nation. She also enjoys the company of all the SRI staff members who make it easier and fun to complete all kinds of projects.
