Matt McKillop manages Pew’s new research for “Fiscal 50,” an online resource that helps policymakers gain insights into the fiscal, economic, and demographic trends affecting their states. McKillop also leads research on state and local correctional health care including examinations of spending on care for people in prisons and jails; whether and how care quality is monitored; and promising practices for facilitating continued care after incarcerated people are released. This work helps policymakers assess and improve their correctional health care systems.
Before joining Pew, McKillop led advocacy and community organizing campaigns for So Others Might Eat, a nonprofit organization that serves poor and homeless residents of the District of Columbia.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Kalamazoo College and a master’s in public policy from George Washington University.
