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 has a diverse policy background, including research in disability education, children’s health, and energy/environmental issues.
Carly is currently working on several random assignment evaluations related to responsible fatherhood, child support, and employment and training. These projects include 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 is involved in many phases of the research process, including site selection, research design, and implementation research.
Prior to MEF, Carly interned at the Partnership for a Healthier America and the U.S. Energy Information Administration. During graduate school, she 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 enjoys playing volleyball, cooking (and tasting) new recipes, and running on the National Mall.
