Tom MiroData and research fellow
Tom joined VOICES for Alabama’s Children in December of 2018 to use data to affect change for all of Alabama’s youth. He is passionate about the impact that effective and thorough research can have on policy and practice in all early childhood sectors; from health to education, he believes that the more data we have, the better policy we can develop. With a background in education research, he has already begun exploring public health, education and finance issues as a Policy Coordinator of Veterans and Military Families for a Congressional campaign. Tom is excited to expand his understanding of the intricate ways all aspects of public and social policy intersect with one another.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts in American History, with related fields in Anthropology and Sociology from the University of Pittsburgh, and a Master of Science in Education from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. He is an alumnus of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning in Hamburg, Germany, where he was a member of the Effective Literacy and Numeracy Practices Database (LitBase) team.
