We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Jessica Joiner has joined our team as a Researcher based in New York, NY! Jessica started with AC at the beginning of the fall 2022 semester and has been working to further enhance our analyses processes, particularly around free response, qualitative data. Moving forward, Jessica will be involved in synthesizing the survey results, and creating the interactive dashboards, for our partner schools.

Jessica is a cognitive psychologist whose research focuses on the impact of social relationships and information on decision making. She completed her undergraduate degree in psychology at Sweet Briar College and her masters and PhD in Cognitive Psychology at Yale University. Jessica has also worked in independent schools in New York City to develop and implement science research opportunities for K-12 institutions.

“I’m looking forward to engaging in the meaningful work of using data to help educational institutions make informed decisions regarding mental health. Mental health and wellness are the fundamental building blocks of a successful education. AC’s ability to reach many students and faculty across the world makes this an exciting opportunity to have a real impact on the well being of schools.”

When asked about adding Jessica to the team, Nina Kumar, CEO, said, “I’m really excited that Jessica has joined our team. Since starting, she’s already helped improve our analyses, processes, and the results we deliver back to partner schools. I know that her passion for using data to improve well-being will help us to continue to grow the positive impact that we have on schools across the world.”
