Five Minutes with APPAM Student Member Rebecca Miller

"I realized that I loved working in environmental fields as a freshman in college. After graduation, I moved to Washington, D.C., and worked as a Science Policy Fellow for the Science and Technology Policy Institute. In supporting a project on local adaptation planning for the Obama Administration, I realized that the academic literature had only limited information as to why municipalities designed adaptation plans or even how to define a “good” adaptation plan."

Jul 03, 2019 01:38 PM

A day-long forum sponsored by Westat and APPAM will focus researchers on sharpening and expanding the mixed method paradigm to respond to these concerns and t enable impact evaluations to make larger contributions to policy learning. Major themes include the roles of mixed methods evaluation in explaining/understanding impact findings from randomized control trials and in strengthening quasi-experimental analytic methods to ward off selection bias.

As an aspiring scholar, I view academia as the ideal location to conduct high quality critical research into important social issues, while simultaneously having the humbling opportunity to help shape the next generation of critical social workers who will work collaboratively to solve the societal and community level issues we will face in the future.
