Research Interests

Angela Evans joined the LBJ School of Public Affairs as clinical professor of the practice of public policy after serving 30 years in public service to the U.S. Congress. The last 13 of these years she served was as the Deputy Director of the Congressional Research Service—the Legislative Branch agency created by the U.S. Congress to serve as its primary source for policy research and analysis.
As Deputy Director she led major organizational changes that not only enhanced the research capacity of the Service but also improved the effectiveness of critical operations. Among her achievements was the creation of a unique management position to lead the research and analysis of policy experts; the creation of a methodology by which the Service created and implemented an integrated, agency-wide research agenda directly aligned with the legislative deliberations of the Congress; and the development of performance standards to evaluate the success of the Service’s work in assisting policy making needs of the Congress.
