CIMM was founded in 2009 by leading television content providers, media agencies and advertisers to promote innovation in audience measurement for television and cross-platform media. CIMM explores and identifies new methodologies and approaches to audience measurement through proof-of-concept pilot studies with independent measurement companies, initially focusing on two key questions:
What are the opportunities and challenges of using return path data from set-top boxes and smart TV’s to measure viewing of television?
What solutions can be developed to measure use of media across platforms?

Most recently, she was Vice President of Insights and Innovation at Time Warner Global Media Group where her work fueled marketing solutions across television, online, mobile and print.
