Before coming to Berkeley, I studied for a Ph.D. in economics (all but dissertation, MIT, 1985-1989) and worked on the randomized experiments to evaluate the Job Training Partnership Act (at Abt Associates) and Canada's Self-Sufficiency Project (at MDRC), among other projects. I'm interested in causal inference, social program evaluation, and education research.
