Maya Singh, MPP '23
Maya Singh (she/her/hers) is currently in her second year of the Master of Public Policy program at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University.
As an intern, Maya provided research support and technical assistance on a variety of projects, but was particularly involved in co-developing a resource guide of survey tools designed to measure mental health domains within immigrant communities and managing and conducting semi-structured interviews as part of an evaluation project on a national economic mobility initiative serving refugees and immigrants.
Working at the Leah Zallman Center gave me invaluable experience to develop my research skills. A major highlight was the chance to work alongside colleagues passionate about driving equitable solutions centering immigrant well-being and economic security.
Maya’s research interests include advancing participatory evaluation and applied research, particularly surrounding initiatives designed to advance the well-being of historically marginalized communities. She is also interested in asset-building strategies, including cash-transfer programs, and place-based economic empowerment solutions.
