Andrei Streke specializes in education research and social program evaluation. He has worked on many projects conducting systematic reviews and quantitative research syntheses.
Streke is currently working on two prominent projects for the Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES). He is conducting independent reviews and evaluations of IES’s Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs), an effort to ensure the RELs focus on high-priority needs and provide educators with high quality products and technical assistance. In addition, he is a lead methodologist, quality reviewer, and a reconciler for the What Works Clearinghouse, an IES initiative that produces systematic reviews of high-quality evidence on what works in education. He has been involved in many aspects of the WWC since 2004 and was a member of the technical review team that developed the first set of standards. Among his other projects, he participated in the systematic review of programs that serve infants and toddlers, and worked as the quality review coordinator for the national registry of evidence-based programs and practices hosted by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration. He also contributed to pioneering meta-analyses of education drug prevention programs, and assessed systematic reviews of key education policy and practice questions for the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development.
Prior to joining Mathematica, Streke held positions with American Institutes for Research, Social Capital Development Corporation, and Tobler Research Associates. He has a Ph.D. in sociology from the State University of New York, University at Albany.
