Paul Yoo joined RAND as a project associate after completing his Ed.M at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. His graduate studies were complemented with field work, which included recruiting districts for an NSF-sponsored study on math instruction quality in the United States, running basic analyses and data-cleaning for a higher education research firm, and writing briefs for leaders in various industries for an interdisciplinary academic group.

In his prior work, he managed projects for a private education enterprise in South Korea and led independent projects for low-income and at-risk students in rural China and rural South Korea. His current interests are broadly in program evaluation.
