Robyn is a graduate of Muskie’s School of Public Service and has been working for the Cutler Institute since 2013.  She is currently the Managing Director of the Survey Research Center. In that capacity, she works closely with Cutler staff across various focus areas, with University faculty conducting independent research, and with external partners.  In addition, Robyn is a member of the Maine Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) and provides guidance and analytical oversight on a handful of projects related to justice policy.

Robyn’s primary interest on all projects is finding the meaning in data and conveying that meaning to an audience that does not generally think quantitatively.
