    I’m in my fifth year as an assistant professor of evaluation at Boston College. My role sits within the department of measurement, evaluation, statistics, and assessment – similar to QUERIES at Illinois. I’m the sole evaluation faculty member which has meant a fun challenge of growing my research agenda, designing courses, and leading evaluation projects.
