Changsoo Song Research Assistant Professor
As a Research Assistant Professor at the Methodology and Evaluation Research Core Facility (MERC) at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln (UNL), I work on evaluating a variety of projects, including an Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Education and Human Resources (IUSE: HER) grant project titled “Engaging the Next Generation of Biochemists” (NSF-funded), an Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS)/Track IV grant project titled “Educational Immersive Simulations to Enhance Understanding of Corn-Water-Ethanol-Beef (CWEB) System Nexus” (NSF-funded), and the Nebraska Team Nutrition grant program (USDA-funded). My research interests are generally in data/information management and analysis for better evaluation practices and evidence-based policy/program management. I obtained my Ph.D. in Public Administration with a major in Information Management from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) in 2014. I worked as a project manager evaluating government policies/programs and as an instructor teaching a variety of courses (e.g., applied statistics, research/evaluation methods, and policy/program planning and evaluations) before joining SBSRC at UNL in 2015.
