Research and Evaluation Project Teams

Discovery Center staff members are organized into three Research and Evaluation Project Teams (Discovery Group - Cox/Nian, Discovery Group - Li/Dixon, and Discovery Group - Morio/Slaughter). Each team is led by a Senior Research Associate and Project Team Leader, and supported by a Research Associate or Statistician and Data Analyst, as well as a graduate research assistant, and undergraduate students. These groups are designed to capitalize on the individual and collective strengths of each team’s members.

While each team manages a specific set of Center projects, Center staff members also share individual expertise across the Center’s work to ensure the highest quality products and services for clients. External consultants and Center Fellows also are tapped to provide specific expertise for projects, when needed. Center Team and individual staff members’ efforts cover a wide range of projects with multiple areas of focus within education.
