Class of 2012

Michael Simon is an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow in the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems of the Directorate for Biological Sciences. He received his PhD in Biology from Tufts University, with a research focus on the integration of sensorimotor control and biomechanics during insect locomotion. After receiving his PhD, Michael worked as a health care strategy consultant at Arcadia Solutions in Burlington, MA, specializing in reducing payer medical loss through improved patient outcomes. Prior to his doctoral work, Michael was a practicing electrical engineer at National Instruments in Austin, TX, where he worked on high-precision measurement devices. Certified in conflict resolution, Michael hopes to use science as a mechanism to bring disparate groups together to identify actionable solutions to policy challenges and bring them to fruition under real-world circumstances. Michael received his BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering and BA in Economics from Rice University, and is fortunate enough to live with his wife in Washington D.C.
