Erin supports the Evidence-Based Policy team in managing a portfolio of randomized controlled trials and reviewing current literature to identify social programs shown to produce meaningful, sustained improvements in people’s lives.

Previously, she worked for Mathematica Policy Research, where she supported impact evaluations of nutrition and energy projects. Prior to her time at Mathematica, she worked at USAID’s Development Innovation Ventures, a tiered evidence fund that pilots, tests, and scales development programs shown by research to be effective. There she oversaw due diligence, procurement, and management of $10 million in grants to social enterprises and researchers. She also worked on randomized controlled trials of sanitation and social safety net programs for Innovations for Poverty Action and Georgetown University, and she was a Princeton in Asia fellow in Vietnam.

Erin received her master’s in international development policy from Georgetown University and holds a bachelor’s in international relations from the University of Rochester.
