As part of the community of academic researchers, I believe that it is important to contribute back to the field through professional service. For my part, I have been involved in a number of different service capacities:
Service to the field:

Professional association committee membership:
Conference session chair:
European Survey Research Association 5th conference (2013). Session titled “Measuring Values in Society”
Successfully helped start and run a student-organized colloquium series for the Stanford Department of Communication
