Policy & Data Analyst

Casey Goldvale was a Policy and Data Analyst with the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality’s Economic Security and Opportunity Initiative. For over six years, she led original public policy analysis and quantitative research related to the caregiving economy, paid leave, postsecondary education, and poverty measurement, among other issues. She also furthered the Initiative’s mission by producing policy recommendations and providing technical assistance to government officials, nonprofits, and journalists.

Previously, Casey worked on tax policy and the president’s budget at the White House National Economic Council during the Obama Administration. Earlier, she spent several years as a Research Assistant at Cornell University, where she analyzed union organizing trends at the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and co-authored studies related to economic development and gender equity at the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. Her work has been covered in national, state, and local media outlets and cited in Congressional testimony and court cases.

She received her M.S. in Mathematics and Statistics from Georgetown University and her B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from Cornell University.

When not parsing policy or crunching numbers about U.S. poverty and inequality, Casey can usually be found immersed in nature, a good book, an overly elaborate cooking project, or time with family and friends.
