Lindsay Page is an assistant professor of education and a research scientist at the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh. Her work focuses on quantitative methods and their application to questions regarding the effectiveness of educational policies and programs across the preschool to postsecondary spectrum. Much of her recent work has involved the implementation of large-scale randomized trials to investigate innovative strategies for improving students’ transition to and through postsecondary education. A key area of focus on this domain is her work on strategies to mitigate summer melt, the phenomenon that college-intending students fail to transition successfully from high school to college. Page earned a doctorate in quantitative policy analysis in education as well as a master’s degree in statistics and a master’s in administration, planning and social policy, all from Harvard. She has a bachelor’s from Dartmouth College.
