The 2018 International Conference Was Truly Focused on the Theme and Location

The conference was filled with great papers on vulnerable populations, new initiatives in cities, and sustainable development. I even chaired a session on public management and government sustainability. It was truly focused on the theme of Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development, with almost half of all papers mentioning “city” or “urban” or “metropolitan” in their titles.


Drs. Gill and Duncan Author Op-Ed on Evaluation of Teachers in Pittsburgh

October 22, 2012 10:32 AM

Drs. Brian Gill and Duncan D. Chaplin, both from Mathematica Policy Research, authored a recent article on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's website. Evaluating teachers 2.0 looks at how Pittsburgh is helping to develop smarter, fairer ways to assess teacher performance. School districts like Pittsburgh's are working to replace moribund, mechanical, infrequent classroom observations with rigorous new measures of professional practice.

Dr. Brian Gill is a senior fellow and associate director at Mathematica's Cambridge office. He currently directs the National Study of the Effectiveness of Charter-School Management Organizations, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the NewSchools Venture Fund. He holds a Ph.D. in jurisprudence and social policy and a J.D., both from the University of California at Berkeley.

Dr. Duncan Chaplin is a senior researcher at Mathematica Policy Research with nearly 20 years of research and evaluation experience. He also serves on the board of the Foundation for Sustainable Development and is a member of a number of professional organizations. He holds a Ph.D. in economics, from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
