Dr. Joseph Galia
Since 2000, Joseph developed programs and systems to analyze and report results for the TIMSS and PIRLS assessments in the Data Analysis Unit of the TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center. His programming skills, attention to details, and hard work contributed to the success of TIMSS and PIRLS. He made prodigious use of his programming dexterity to find elegant and effective solutions to complex statistical and reporting requirements. His ability to streamline programming code and find ways to automate our programs and processes have been instrumental in allowing TIMSS and PIRLS to grow in volume and complexity over the years.
He always made time to share his knowledge and expertise, and support everyone who needed help. His kindness and generosity touched all who worked with him and spent time in his company, for which we will be forever grateful.
