Elizabeth Sall Executive Director
The ResearcHQ.org team is led by
Elizabeth Sall, the former Deputy Director for Technology, Data, and Analysis at the
S.F. County Transportation Authority. Elizabeth decided
to start ResearcHQ.org after being consistently frustrated by the difficulties
of executing small contracts with Academic institutions while working in government.
Elizabeth has experience in multiple sectors: government, non-profit,
and academia. She holds several appointments to committees of the Transportation
Research Board, has served on the department-level advisory board at her alma-mater
N.C. State University, and is a frequent lecturer at universities. Elizabeth is a
frequent presenter and organizer of civic technology conferences, has pioneered an academic
research program at the SFCTA and continues to lead government-funded research projects
with cross-sector teams. In the non-profit sector, she has experience as both a funder
and oversight board-member in working with academic researchers.
