New Director of ISRDI Announced
We are excited to announce Rob Warren as the new Director of the Institute for Social Research and Data Innovation (ISRDI).
Rob Warren has been an active member of our community since arriving at the University of Minnesota in 2002. As a researcher, his active multi-million dollar research portfolio fits squarely within ISRDI’s mission. He has served as MPI of IPUMS Current Population Survey for the past 15 years and has served as Principal Investigator for grants related to record linkage of historical census data. He is currently working on multiple projects that examine the long-term impacts of adolescent exposure to a variety of environments and contexts on various health and cognitive outcomes in the later life course. Rob has already demonstrated a commitment to growing and nurturing the ISRDI intellectual environment. He chaired the interdisciplinary university-wide search committee that brought six faculty members with expertise in demography to Minnesota. Rob has held two key leadership roles--inaugural training director from 2012-2016 and director of the Minnesota Population Center from 2016-2021.
