A quantitative policy analyst at RAND since 1988, Susan S. Everingham has been involved in a diverse array of policy studies, concentrating on the mathematical modeling of complex systems as well as cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses of policy alternatives. Her early work focused on ballistic missile defense and military communication systems. She coauthored RAND's 1994 study comparing the cost-effectiveness of various cocaine control strategies and developed the Markov-based model of the demand for cocaine that was used in that research. Everingham also contributed to a number of studies of the criminal justice system and violence prevention. Additionally, she has served in a number of management positions, including a program of research on military personnel policies and a unit focused on international outreach. She has been the director of RAND's Pittsburgh office since October 2008 and is a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School.
