Adam Seth Levine is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management in the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins. Many questions pique his interest and excitement. The top ones are: “When do ordinary citizens become engaged in civic life, and with what impact?” and “How do diverse people, such as researchers and community leaders, collaborate to address problems?” He has published research findings addressing these questions in a variety of political science, transportation planning, climate change, communication, law, and economics journals, as well as in one book entitled “American Insecurity,” published by Princeton University Press. He is deeply committed to broad public engagement. Many of his studies entail formal collaborations with nonprofit organizations, in which they work together to design and carry out research. He regularly gives talks on civic engagement to a wide variety of audiences, including researchers, nonprofit leaders, policymakers, students, business leaders, and philanthropists. Lastly, he is also the president and co-founder of research4impact, a nonprofit that creates powerful new collaborative relationships between researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. Since 2018 he has helped create over 300 new collaborations.
