Dr. Elizabeth A. Shuey is an Executive Branch Fellow in the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). Her work at OPRE focuses on early care and education, primarily research on child care programs.

Dr. Shuey received her Ph.D. in 2015 from the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development at Tufts University. As a doctoral student, she was a Doris Duke Fellow for the Promotion of Child Well-Being, and also interned at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and in the ACF Region 1 Offices of Child Care and Head Start. Prior to attending Tufts, she worked at RTI International where she gained experience with program evaluation and national data collection. She also holds a B.A. in psychology from Oberlin College and a M.A. in clinical psychology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
