Stacy's work as a college advisor and later as a director of enrichment programming at a Title I school in Brooklyn, New York led her to become an education researcher to explore systemic inequities in our education systems. Through her doctoral training she acquired the analytic skillset required to conduct rigorous evaluations of programs and policies. Her guiding objective is to use data and evidence to inform the work of institutions that aim to better support students and families with limited financial and social resources. Stacy received her B.A. in political-economic theory and education reform from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and she received her Ph.D. in the Learning Sciences and Policy program at the University of Pittsburgh.
