Hi, I'm Namrata!
Hi, I’m Namrata- Principal Researcher and Evaluator at Research for Social Impact, Inc. (RSI).
I started RSI with a passion for using data to help people make decisions about their programs. I’ve witnessed firsthand how research can help people improve their programs, demonstrate the impact of their work, and ultimately create the social impact they envision.
With more than 15 years working in the education research field and partnering with Pre-K-12 schools, 2- and 4-year colleges, foundations, and nonprofits to help improve their programs and systems, I’ve seen the power of research and evaluation when it is done well. Today, in addition to providing research and evaluation services at RSI , I also teach research methods at a local community college and enjoy being a wife and mom.
In my previous experiences, I've worked at several research and evaluation firms and a grant-making organization (please see my LinkedIn profile for details). My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: underserved and underresourced students and communities; educator effectiveness; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); college readiness; and social identity.
