Pardee RAND's Ph.D. fellows conduct a wide range of research at RAND and beyond. At this event they will be discussing their current research or proposals. We encourage local and regional business leaders, entrepreneurs, and hiring managers to engage with them to

  • get ideas for their own agency or organization
  • provide feedback on implementation challenges in a real-world setting
  • gain a better understanding of the latest research on key policy topics, and
  • spot future talent

Attendees will enjoy some afternoon refreshments while sharing their thoughts and critiques on research that may influence societal problems and issues.


Our fellows will present research on policy issues in the following areas (and more)!

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Cannabis Laws
  • City Diplomacy
  • Disinformation
  • Education
  • Gentrification
  • Labor Markets
  • Local Governance
  • Medical Billing
  • National Defense
  • Poverty Reduction
  • Retirement Challenges
  • Smart Cities
  • Social Media
  • Tax Compliance
  • Transportation
  • Water Governance
  • Wellness Communities
