MSU Team

Our team consists of collaborators from MSU's interdisciplinary and cross-institutional backgrounds with experience working on multi-site evaluations in K-12 and early childhood program settings. All the senior personnel are well-experienced with large-scale data collection, management, and analysis, and are expected to widely disseminate the findings through the affiliated networks across the fields of evaluation, education, child development, economy, social policies, and statistics.
