Adam Seth Levine is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management in the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins. Of his many research interests, he is currently examining “When, why, and how do diverse people, such as researchers and community leaders, collaborate to address problems in civic life?” In addition to publishing research addressing these questions in peer-reviewed publications and books, he is also deeply committed to broad public engagement. Many of his studies entail formal collaborations with nonprofit organizations, in which they work together to design and carry out research. Thus far he has collaborated with six nonprofits to conduct research in six countries including the United States, Kenya, Nepal, Mexico, Ecuador, and Vietnam. He is also the president and co-founder of research4impact, a nonprofit that creates meaningful collaboration anew between researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.
