ERS Team

Emma Montgomery


Emma is collaborating with the Nebraska Department of Education to design an elementary scheduling guidebook reflecting elementary scheduling best practices and current student needs in Nebraska. Emma’s research on strategic scheduling and schedule modeling will help create a guidebook to reflect strategic scheduling that applies to the range of schools in Nebraska. Emma especially enjoys tuning in to district and principal conversations to help situate analysis in the local context 

Prior to joining ERS, Emma studied Economics at Brown University where she was a teaching assistant for courses at the intersection of economics and education as well as econometrics. She enjoys working in interdisciplinary spaces and finds energy from drawing connections across people and ideas through data analysis, creative communication, and relationship building.  

Outside the office, Emma’s hobbies rotate around New England’s seasons. She can be found teaching adaptive skiing in the winter, sailing dinghies in the spring and summer, and going for jogs and hikes throughout New Hampshire in the fall.
