As a Research Assistant, Michael supports Informing Change’s client projects by assisting with data collection, survey programming and administration, graphics preparation for reports, and client scheduling. He also provides support in editing and formatting projects when needed.
Michael’s background includes work as a Research Assistant in various capacities, supporting quantitative and qualitative data collection, analysis, and survey administration for research studies in psychology, and conducting archival and database research for projects in literary studies. In one of these roles, he contributed to extensive interview analysis for the New England Consortium on Assessment of Student Learning, a longitudinal study assessing students’ growth in academic engagement, success goals, decision-making and social identities across seven liberal arts colleges.
Michael holds an MA in Italian Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, and a BA in Psychology from Bowdoin College. Michael previously taught Italian as a graduate student at UC Berkeley, and when not helping to move client projects forward he can usually be found moving outdoors: biking, rowing, running and skiing are his favorite pastimes.
