From the speaker's bio:

Shanyce L. Campbell received her Ph.D. in Public Policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Bachelors of Science (Summa Cum Laude) in Accounting with a concentration in Economics from North Carolina A&T State University in 2004. After graduating, she began her accounting career at Deloitte Tax LLP as a Global Employer Services tax consultant in Chicago, IL.

During these programs she focused on the influence of employer provided insurance on Black elderly women’s health status.

Shanyce was involved in several projects related to the University of North Carolina system teacher preparation programs and the North Carolina Race to the Top evaluation. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Education at the University of Michigan, where she is focusing on teacher preparation programs and teacher quality. Her research interests include: educational inequity, teacher quality and distribution, qualitative and quantitative research methods and program evaluation.

About CIERS:

The objective of the Causal Inference in Education Research Seminar (CIERS) is to engage students and faculty from across the university in conversations around education research using various research methodologies. 

This seminar provides a space for doctoral students and faculty from the School of Education, Ford School of Public Policy, and the Departments of Economics, Sociology, Statistics, and Political Science to discuss current research and receive feedback on works-in-progress. Discourse between these schools and departments creates a more complete community of education scholars, and provides a networking opportunity for students enrolled in a variety of academic programs who share common research interests. Open to PhD students and faculty engaged in causal inference in education research.
