Danielle DeLisle is a researcher in the Human Services division. She specializes in qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis and providing evaluation-based technical assistance to federal grant recipients, state governments, and nonprofits.
Since coming to Mathematica in 2020, DeLisle has worked on a range of projects in family support, early childhood, nutrition, and education. She served as the deputy cost data collection task lead for a study that assessed the implementation and cost of high-quality early childcare and education. She also served on a work group to revise Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness (HomVEE) systematic review standards to include single-case design research. DeLisle conducted interviews and developed practice briefs, case studies, video interviews, and podcasts on best practices for father engagement in human services programs. She currently provides evaluation-based technical assistance on projects with (1) grant recipients delivering family self-sufficiency programs and (2) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment and Training programs.
Before joining Mathematica, DeLisle was a research specialist at the University of Maryland School of Social Work, where she partnered with the Maryland Department of Human Services to support continuous quality improvement in child welfare practice and policy. She holds a master’s degree in public policy from the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy and bachelor’s degrees in foreign affairs and Spanish from the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia.
