Research Scientist, Learning Research & Development Center

Research Interests

Lindsay's work focuses on quantitative methods and their application to questions regarding the effectiveness of educational policies and programs across the pre-school to postsecondary spectrum. Much of her recent work has focused on implementing large-scale randomized trials to investigate potential solutions to "summer melt," the phenomenon that college-intending students fail to transition successfully from high school to college. Lindsay has co-authored a book on summer melt to be published by the Harvard Education Press this coming fall. Lindsay earned an EdD in quantitative policy analysis in education as well as a master's degree in statistics and a master's degree in administration, planning, and social policy, all from Harvard. She holds a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College.
