Erin-Elizabeth Johnson is the managing editor at the RAND Corporation. She has more than 15 years of communications experience in a variety of fields, including defense and military affairs, international development and security, and education. She began working at RAND in 2007 as a research editor and was soon collaborating with researchers to devise communications strategies, unify content, and create compelling messages. As a communications analyst, she developed print, online, and multimedia materials to support projects, promote research findings to a broad audience, and increase public understanding of RAND's mission. Johnson supervises a staff of 19 full-time research editors, as well as several adjuncts.
Before joining RAND, Johnson was an associate with Booz Allen Hamilton, where she led business development for a foreign affairs department and managed projects funded by the Navy. As a consultant, she worked closely with the Marine Corps to develop the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate's first investment plan and with the Navy to define the Sea Shaping (i.e., foreign-influence) pillar.
Johnson graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in comparative literature and from Georgetown with an M.A. in security studies. Her master's thesis was on Chechen small arms and light weapons. In 2013, she completed a professional certificate program in graphic design.
