Miranda Manzanares is an Associate Research Specialist with the Evaluation Research Group at the Population Health Institute. Her work is spread across three projects, the Tribal Personal Responsibility Education Program, Project AWARE, and Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE). While each project is unique, there exists a common goal of improving outcomes and access to services for Wisconsin’s priority populations – a goal that Miranda is deeply passionate about.
Prior to joining University of Wisconsin-Madison Population Health Institute, Miranda completed her undergraduate education on campus earning a B.S. in Neurobiology and Psychology as well as a certificate in Global Health. Her previous experiences focused on community needs and program implementation in Nicaragua, integrating a biological understanding of adolescent development into discussions surrounding teen pregnancy prevention, and prior research experience with Dr. Hubbard’s Educational Neuroscience Lab and Dr. Harackiewicz’s PULSE Lab.
