Research

While I have many years of experience conducting research as a journalist, I recently had my first taste of helping to publish higher education research alongside my team at The Aspen Institute. The two-volume research paper on community college transfer to high graduation rate four-year institutions can be found here, on The American Talent Initiative's website.
