Léon Marbach is a Visiting Research Fellow with the Annenberg Institute. He is a masters student in Social Policy at the Sciences Po School of Public Affairs in Paris and has completed an interdisciplinary dual bachelor degree – a B.A. in Social Sciences and Economics at Sciences Po and a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at Pantheon-Sorbonne University. He was also a visiting undergraduate student in mathematics at UCLA.
Prior to joining the Annenberg Institute, Marbach was a research assistant at the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies at Sciences Po, where he took part in a research project analyzing factors that influence French high school students’ postsecondary choices.
More broadly, Marbach's research interest is in the inequality of access to postsecondary education. His primary focuses are enrollment management and organizational change in higher education institutions. In the near future, Marbach hopes to conduct his own research by pursuing a PhD in education.
