Our team

We are an interdisciplinary team of educators, economists, sociologists, statisticians, and data scientists who are dedicated to using research to improve outcomes for children. We specialize in training next generation scholars in causal inference methods to evaluate education policies and programs.  We teach advanced econometrics, program evaluation, and education policy courses. We also have a unique research practice partnership with the State of Michigan, as is evident through the Michigan Education Data Center.
