Wiebke Weber is the head of the Advanced Survey Quality Methods (ASQME) research group and head of the Core Scientific Team of the European Social Survey (ESS) ERIC at the Research and Expertise Centre for Survey Methodology (RECSM), of  Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain). Within the ESS she is mainly focused on measurement quality and cross-national measurement equivalence and within the Horizon 2020 SERISS project, Wiebke studies web survey panelists’ responding behavior as well as strategies to improve this behavior. Finally, as a survey consultant, she advices on questionnaire design and survey data analyses with correction for measurement error (see some examples here: Expertise projects).
