Pursuing a Ph.D. in Demography, University of Pennsylvania

Gwynne Evans-Lomayesva (Snow Clan, Hopi Tribal Nation) is pursuing her Ph.D. in Demography at the University of Pennsylvania. Gwynne’s passion for Demography emerged from her years working with Census Bureau data and collaborating with Demographers and Sociologists in the field. Gwynne is a recipient of the University of Pennsylvania’s Presidential PhD fellowship and the Fontaine Fellowship. She plans to continue to focus her research on the American Indian/Alaska Native population and geographic population data.

She joined the university from the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) Policy Research Center, where she served as the Center’s Researcher from 2018- 2022 and led the NCAI Policy Research Center’s Census Information Center (CIC) from 2019-2022. Gwynne served on the national CIC Network Steering Committee beginning in 2019 and she was elected as Chair for the national CIC network in 2020, where she served until 2022.

In addition to her Census Information Center work, Gwynne served on the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Committee on National Statistics (CNSTAT) Expert Meeting Series for 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System Implementation for the Redistricting File, she served as a representative for the CIC network to the U.S. Census Bureau on differential privacy, and served on several stakeholder groups related to Census privacy algorithms.

Gwynne remains engaged with Census data work through the National Conference on Citizenship Census Quality Reinforcement Task Force’s James F. Holmes Future Inclusion & Equity Leadership Development (FIELD) Initiative, which aims to support the next generation of census quality experts from underrepresented communities. Gwynne is proud to serve the Census Bureau further through her position on the Census Scientific Advisory Committee.
