Michael Pullmann, PhD

Michael Pullmann, Ph.D., leads the SMART Center analytic Data Core. His research has focused on community-based and participatory approaches in cross-system collaborative efforts to serve youth and families with complex needs, with an emphasis on education and mental health. He also conducts research on the possible unforeseen consequences and outcomes associated with implementation strategies, digital mental health tools, and racial and ethnic disproportionality in discipline. He provides methodological leadership on multiple projects within the SMART center, with a particular interest in illuminating the impact of policy decisions through longitudinal approaches to data analyses of large scale administrative databases, and on smaller scale implementation and dissemination efforts.
