Daniel Max Crowley
Max Crowley is a postdoctoral associate who joined the Center in 2012. His work focuses on strengthening benefit-cost analyses of prevention programs and delivery systems. Crowley’s research includes: (1) developing analytic techniques for increasing the economic evaluations relevance for public policy, (2) modeling the resource needs and economic impact of evidence-based prevention efforts, and (3) increasing standards for evaluating the efficiency of prevention efforts. He is particularly interested in using emerging informatics and eHealth technologies to enhance the efficiency of community-based efforts to prevent mental, emotional and behavioral disorders in youth.
Crowley is co-chair of the Prevention Efficiency Planning and Research (PEPR) network, a transdisciplinary collaboration formed to meet growing demand for estimates of the social and economic value of prevention strategies for improving public health.
