Sound policy should be data-driven, informed by the findings of objective, rigorous research. Urban’s reputation for impartial, independent, high-quality research and the opportunity to bring that research to policymakers and practitioners is what drew me here. It is exciting and rewarding to translate research into actionable recommendations that can improve practice, programming, or policies, and positively affect individuals and communities.
