Grace Gonzalez


Evaluation Specialist

Grace graduated from the University of Denver in 2022 with degrees in Criminology and Geography. Her interests lie in data management, qualitative research, and the use of GIS to visualize data and spatial patterns. Grace’s prior experience on the Changing Tides of Mass Incarceration project, funded by the National Science Foundation, fostered skills in qualitative coding and database organization that translate well to her work at The Evaluation Center. Grace is interested in exploring the interconnectedness of the criminal legal system and public health, especially regarding substance use, mental health, and the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on incarcerated populations.

As an Evaluation Specialist, Grace supports a variety of projects at The Evaluation Center through qualitative and quantitative data analysis and management, including the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and the State Opioid Response Grant Program Evaluation.

In her free time, Grace enjoys maintaining her fashion blog, hiking, and scrapbooking.
