Stephanie Gimenez Stahlberg


I am a Social Scientist and User Experience (UX) Researcher at Google. Previously, I was a Research Associate at Stanford University's Poverty | Violence | Governance Lab, a volunteer UX Research Lead at Hack for LA, and a consultant for the World Bank, USAID, and Social Impact. I employ mixed methods in my research, including surveys, experiments, statistical analysis, and interviews.

With my academic work, I focused on the dynamics of crime and violence in Latin America and the Caribbean, and on evaluating the impact of programs and policies that tackle poverty, inequality, and violence prevention. My academic work was recently covered by the media in Revista Piauí, UOL, Portal G1 and Jornal O Povo.

I am originally from São Paulo, Brazil, and studied Economics and Political Science at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst. I also graduated from Stanford University with an M.A. in International Policy Studies, and from Johns Hopkins University with a Ph.D. in International Relations.
