Dr. Pirog's research focuses on the evaluation of government programs, the methodology of evaluation as well as the evaluation of social welfare policies. She recently completely several projects on E-Governance, two of which were national demonstration projects funded by the U.S. Office of Child Support Enforcement. She completed an evaluation assessment of a quarter billion dollar (U.S.) education intervention in Barbados for the InterAmerican Development Bank. Recent past projects also include a review on Indiana township governance structure as well as a large-scale evaluation of the Indiana welfare reform experiment funded jointly by the Joyce Foundation, the Indiana Family Social Services Administration and the Indiana Township Association.
