Founder and CEO
Lakshmi Bloom has more than 30 years of experience in the areas of survey design and analysis, human resource information systems, and microcomputer modeling. She specializes in the collection, assessment and processing of quantitative and qualitative data for policy analysis, executive decision-making and employment-related litigation. Her particular expertise lies in her ability to bridge the divide between data and decision-making, something that she credits to the analytical and yet pragmatic and policy-oriented training she received at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School. Lakshmi relies on this expertise in her work at DfD, communicating the results of complex economic and statistical models in a manner that enables clients to understand and use them for strategic decision making. In addition to her labor and employment related work, Lakshmi works in collaboration with her husband David E. Bloom on public health research and has co-authored a number of articles with him on the relationship between business and communicable disease threats.
