Our Team

ARC is directed by Kevin Brown. Leading the project are Principal Investigator and NORC Senior Fellow Barbara Schneider (Michigan State University) and Co-Principal Investigators Larry Hedges (Northwestern University) and Colm O’Muircheartaigh (University of Chicago).

ARC Investigators

  • Barbara Schneider. Schneider’s research is directed to understanding how knowledge accumulates, how research networks form, and how evidence of causality is obtained.
  • Larry Hedges. Hedges’ research straddles many disciplines and focuses on developing statistical methods for meta-analysis in the social, medical, and biological sciences.
  • Colm O’Muircheartaigh. O’Muircheartaigh’s research considers the limits of generalization associated with single studies and with programs of research more generally.
