Lina joined Cornell University’s Employment and Disability Institute (EDI) in January 2014 as a Program Evaluation Specialist providing support to the Northeast ADA Center.  In this role, her focus is on developing and implementing transparent and consistent systems and protocols for data collection and reporting across the multiple Center activities in a way that is not only consistent with established goals and objectives but also, and importantly, informs and promotes continuous program development and organizational learning.

Lina has over four years of applied program evaluation experience, particularly in the field of K-12 and Higher Education.  In her role as evaluation administrator with the Office of Professional Research and Development at Syracuse University, she has managed a large number of evaluation projects for a variety of clients, including the New York State Education Department’s Office of Special Education, The Lawrence B. Taishoff Center for Inclusive Higher Education, and Syracuse University’s School of Education.  Since 2009, Lina has also worked as an independent evaluation consultant with the R/E/D Group, LLC.  While at EDI, she continues to work part time for Syracuse University and consults for the R/E/D Group on occasion.

Lina’s primary expertise is in evaluation research and design, evaluation management, logic model development, and grant writing.
