Carly Morrison joined MEF Associates as a Research Analyst in 2014. She is interested in a wide range of policy solutions to help the most vulnerable members of society, particularly children and families. Carly is involved in many phases of the research process, including intervention design, random assignment evaluation design and implementation, site operations work, and implementation research.
Carly is currently working on projects in an array of policy areas, including responsible fatherhood, child support, employment and training, and TANF. These projects include several multi-site random assignment evaluations, such as the Building Bridges and Bonds responsible fatherhood study, Behavioral Interventions for Child Support Services, and an evaluation of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Ready to Work Grants.
Carly has a diverse policy background, including research in disability education, children’s health, and energy/environmental issues. During graduate school, Carly completed a client-based capstone project for the U.S. Government Accountability Office examining the differences in disability education implementation across states under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
Carly holds a Master of Public Policy degree from Georgetown University’s McCourt School and a B.A. in Political Science from Providence College. When she is not working, Carly plays volleyball and coaches a club volleyball team, and enjoys cooking (and tasting) new recipes and running on the National Mall.
