After completing her undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies and Legal Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Riri Shibata joined Applied Survey Research in August 2018. Riri supports ASR as a research analyst, assisting with assessment and evaluation projects. She enjoys working with clients and facilitating them through research processes.
During her undergraduate career, Riri applied her interdisciplinary studies by exploring the nexus of human health, public policy, and environmental conditions in different populations. The ways in which different levels of equity and social justice impact the outcomes of an individual’s quality of life, furthered Riri’s desire to be a part of ASR and its mission to improve the lives of our most at-risk community members. Riri hopes to contribute to the continuing history of ASR’s strong dedication and involvement in building better communities.
