Dr Elizabeth Linos
EMMA BLOOMBERG ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR of PUBLIC POLICY and MANAGEMENT at
HARVARD KENNEDY SCHOOL
FACULTY DIRECTOR of
THE PEOPLE LAB
I am a public management scholar and behavioral scientist who studies, designs, and tests innovations in how government operates.
The majority of my work focuses on the people of government and the services they deliver. I think about how to recruit, retain and support diverse talent in government; how to reduce the burdens people face when they interact with government; and how to reimagine evidence-based policy making such that academic research is more useful to practitioners and is ultimately adopted at scale.
In 2017, I founded The People Lab that collaborates directly with government agencies and other organizations to respond to real-time challenges that practitioners face, turning academic knowledge into scalable solutions.
