Andrew R. Morral is a senior behavioral scientist at the RAND Corporation, and leader of Gun Policy in America, a RAND initiative to understand the effects of gun policies. His research expertise includes program evaluation, modeling and simulation, survey research, and performance measurement. He has developed innovative techniques for examining drug use epidemiology and survey response accuracy, and causal modeling software that is now in wide distribution. In addition to his gun policy work, his recent research includes an evaluation of the prevalence and characteristics of sexual assault against members of the U.S. military, an evaluation of the Israel Police, an assessment of the validity of the primary aviation system terrorism risk model used by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, and two studies of the deterrence benefits attributable to counterterrorism security systems. Morral has published dozens of peer-reviewed reports in leading scientific and policy journals, and has served as a science advisor to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, to the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorist Events, and to the DHS Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards program.
