Matthew Walsh is a Research Lead at Burning Glass Technologies where he specializes in projects related to workforce development, or how to create good jobs that support individuals, families, and communities.
At Burning Glass, Matthew has worked on a variety of inclusive development projects: regional initiatives that connect underemployed local workers to critical and high-paying occupations in strategic industries, investigations into local barriers to employment and the social conditions that disadvantage certain workers, and briefs on public policies and changes in employer behavior that would result in increased mobility out of entry-level jobs. Matthew has also worked with stakeholders in education to improve occupational credentialing and to align curricula with trends in job demand.
Prior to working at Burning Glass, Matthew was a Fulbright Scholar in Argentina and a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Dominican Republic. His research from the former was published by the academic journal Desarrollo y Sociedad.
Matthew earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Chicago.
