|In Memoriam: Daniel Cooper|
Henry Crawford joined forces with Celinda Lake in 1991 as Director of Information Systems at Greenberg-Lake and was there at the start of Lake Research Partners in 1995. Through the years, Henry has been at the center of most of the firm’s technological and methodological advances. He oversees and codes alongside a sophisticated staff of statistical programmers, working closely with the analysts to attain a high level of insight and reporting for our clients.
Beyond technical, methodological and programming support, Henry’s main thrill and joy are his family and four young children. He plays guitar, runs an occasional marathon, and loves fantasy baseball.
Before survey research, Henry was a flight instructor in Florida, and an international development officer for the American Farm School of Thessaloniki, Greece. He holds a degree in economics from Haverford College, and instructor certificates in single and multi-engine instrument flight.
Matt Eberle joined Lake Research Partners in 2003. A systems specialist, Matt goes above and beyond the standard data production and analysis. He has helped create audio/visual presentations (including finding hardware and software solutions), and worked on increasing programmer efficiency.
A military brat, Matt has lived in more places than he would care to count. He holds a B.A. in computer science from Carroll College and currently resides in Helena, Montana.
Gretchen Pfau started at Lake Research Partners as an intern in 2009, before becoming the field director and then moving over to the statistical programming department in 2013. She specializes in survey sampling, voter turnout models, and statistical modeling. She has also acquired the mostly useless party trick of being able to name the county that most major cities are in.
Gretchen grew up and lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she was introduced to political campaigns at an early age, volunteering with DFL campaigns as soon as she could knock on doors. She holds a B.A. in Political Science and Statistics from the University of Chicago and an M.A. in Government, with a specialization in Applied Politics, from American University.
