Danielle Yardy leads research for EAB’s IT Forum. As a research consultant, she works closely with CIOs and IT leaders across the US, Canada, and the UK to isolate and resolve some of education’s most complex technology issues. She regularly visits with members to bring our research to life in workshops for IT staff and institutional leaders to help campuses build a pathway from research to results.
As a first-generation student turned PhD, widening access to quality education is Danielle’s passion. Throughout her university and post-academic careers, she has used her free time to teach Shakespeare and the arts to underprivileged youth and adults, and worked closely with multiple non-profits to provide one-on-one tutoring for children in DC and Chicago public schools.
Danielle earned a B.A. in English from Durham University. Her DPhil (PhD) is from the University of Oxford, where she completed her thesis on judicial burnings in early modern literature.
