Research Associate

Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER)

Florio conducts workshops and works with individual researchers at Cornell on the management and processing of qualitative and quantitative data, stewardship of private or confidential data, and the use of statistical software packages. As a consultant with the Research Data Management Service Group, he helps researchers develop data management plans and access the services necessary to implement them. Florio established CISER’s Data Curation and Reproduction of Results Service, or R2, which allows researchers to submit their data and code to CISER prior to manuscript submission for appraisal, curation, and replication by CISER data curation and computing experts. He also co-founded Curating for Reproducibility (CURE), a consortium of Cornell, Yale, and the University of North Carolina, that promotes workflows and documentation methods that enhance the reproducibility of statistical research. CURE presentations may be found on the Open Science Framework (OSF).

Florio earned an A.B. in Economics at the Ateneo de Davao University, an M.A. in Demography at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, and both an M.S. and Ph.D. in Development Sociology at Cornell University.

AS A TIER FELLOW... Florio will incorporate the TIER Protocol in the trainings on Research Transparency and Reproducibility that he conducts for several cohorts of Cornell graduate students every year. He will also introduce the Protocol to advanced doctoral students and early career Ph.D.s in Economics from Ethiopia, Malawi, Ivory Coast, and the Democratic Republic of Congo that he mentors through the Structural Transformation of African Agriculture and Rural Spaces (STAARS) Program. The TIER Protocol will also inform the work on reproducibility-oriented data curation that Florio carries out for CISER and in cooperation with colleagues from CURE.
