Post-doctoral Research Scholar, Research-to-Policy Collaboration
Biography & Projects
Elizabeth Long is a post-doctoral fellow with the Research-to-Policy Collaboration. In this role, she is primarily responsible for the quantitative evaluation of the RPC’s impact. More specifically, this work involves (1) survey development and programming; (2) coordinating online data collection from researchers to assess their capacity for engaging in public policy processes; (3) scheduling and administering corresponding surveys to legislative staff to assess their reported behaviors and attitudes regarding the use of research evidence; and (4) data management and analysis. In addition to the quantitative evaluation of the RPC, Dr. Long is also involved in examining the use of research in legislation through deductive coding of legislative bills and investigating best practices for electronic research dissemination approaches to improve the reach of research syntheses among policymakers.
