CV | @MemeMedianMode | mark_chin@g.harvard.edu

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Education in the Education Policy and Program Evaluation concentration at Harvard University.

I study how public education in the U.S. can help combat racial and socioeconomic inequality. In my research, I use rigorous quantitative methodology to identify the causal impacts of different policies, programs, and interventions in schools on students' outcomes.

My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as the American Educational Research Journal, the Economics of Education Review, Educational Researcher, the Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness and the Industrial and Labor Relations Review. News outlets such as Brookings and Politico have also covered this work.


To learn more about my publications, please see my CV. For more information on the theory of action behind the work (including the papers in my dissertation) I am interested in, please see my Research. Finally, for a peek into my life outside of academia, please see my Not Research. Thanks for coming!
