Sally Safi has a PhD from the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with a concentration in Reproductive, Perinatal and Women’s Health as well as Health Services Research and Evaluation. Her dissertation research focused on survey methodology and examined the effects of employing resident enumerators and conducting rapid-repeat surveys on data quality. Sally is interested in survey implementation and has experience in survey data collection, management, analysis, and utilization. Currently, Sally leads capacity building activities for the PMA Ethiopia project. In this role Sally is able to combine her interest in survey methodology with the joy of teaching. By working to develop survey research talent and improve data collection systems, Sally aims to help inform public health efforts that ultimately improve access to health services.
