Andrew Stawasz

Legal Fellow

Andy holds a J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School and a B.S. with Honors from Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations. Andy's interest in rationalizing regulatory decisionmaking began before law school, when he worked as a Research Associate at Data for Decisions LLC, a Massachusetts-based economic consulting firm. There, he worked on projects relating to the full social and economic benefits of vaccination and other global health interventions that resulted in numerous peer-reviewed articles and more general publications. During law school, he undertook extensive research projects regarding how to improve regulatory cost-benefit analysis. He was among the inaugural cohort of Brooks Institute Emerging Scholar Fellows and served as Executive Technical Editor for the Harvard Journal on Legislation. His work at Policy Integrity focuses on rigorously rationalizing the government's use of cost-benefit analysis and the social cost of greenhouse gases. He previously served as Advisor at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
