Research and Evaluation Project Team

Discovery Center staff members work together on Research and Evaluation Project Teams Teams which include Senior Research Associate and Project Team Leaders, who are supported by a Research Associate or Statistician and Data Analyst, as well as a graduate research assistant, and undergraduate students. Teams work together to capitalize on the individual and collective strengths of each member.

While different groups manage specific Center projects, Center staff members also share individual expertise across the Center’s work to ensure the highest quality products and services for clients. External consultants and Center Fellows also are tapped to provide specific expertise for projects, when needed. Center Team and individual staff members’ efforts cover a wide range of projects with multiple areas of focus within education.
