From 2012 to 2105, he was director of the Center for Research and Policy in International Development in RAND's Labor and Population unit.
Recent projects that he has led include an NIH-funded study of health risk behaviors among Palestinian youth, an evaluation of the household impacts of cataract surgery in Ethiopia, and a project to develop capacity and implement labor force surveys in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. He leads RAND's participation in Solutions for Youth Employment, a coalition including the World Bank and other international organizations, and has examined youth schooling-to-employment transitions in settings such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Mongolia. In the US, he is part of a team studying National Guard Youth ChalleNGe, a residential program for out of school youth that provides life skills, academic instruction, and vocational education.
Glick's research has also examined education and health care demand, school quality and learning, gender differences in education and earnings, the impacts of export manufacturing on women, HIV/AIDS knowledge and behaviors in Africa, and the behavioral and economic impacts of antiretroviral therapy. He has carried out impact evaluations of health interventions, and designed and implemented household and provider surveys, in numerous low and middle income countries.
