Vice President, Research, Arnold Ventures


Stuart Buck is the vice president of research at Arnold Ventures, one of the leading funders of research to inform public policy. He has given advice to DARPA, IARPA (the CIA’s research arm), and the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team on rigorous research processes. He has sponsored major efforts showing that even the best scientific research is often irreproducible; this work has been featured in Wired, the Economist, the New York Times, and the Atlantic. He has also published in top journals (such as Science and BMJ) on how to make research more accurate. He holds a PhD in education policy from the University of Arkansas, where he studied econometrics, statistics, and program evaluation; a JD with honors from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review; and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music performance from the University of Georgia.
