My name is Philip Gigliotti and I am a fifth Year PhD candidate in Public Administration and Policy at the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at SUNY Albany. My work bridges public policy and public management, and I use quantitative methods to understand the relationship between public programs and policies and social outcomes in public health and public education. A significant area of interest is evaluating the performance effects of performance management systems, and the role of performance information use and managerial decision-making as causal mechanisms. My dissertation explores the relationship between performance management and population health outcomes in the context of public health organizations. My research has been published in Public Management Review, Journal of Public Health Management and Practice, Perspectives on Public Management and Governance, Economics of Education Review, and Research in Higher Education.
