Paige Mustain

Research Data Specialist II


With a background researching the intersection of technology, inequalities and education, Paige is particularly passionate about identifying the barriers to equitable socioeconomic outcomes faced by marginalized communities. Paige  earned her Ph.D. from the University of Oxford where she worked on various international projects surrounding issues of digital inequalities. She wrote her doctoral thesis on the role of technology-centered public private partnerships in the US K-12 public school system and the impact for students from low-income schools in terms of social mobility and career pathways. For the last decade Paige has worked tirelessly as a researcher to land in a position where she can have a positive, meaningful impact on policy. As a proud Californian, Paige couldn’t imagine a better fit for her goals, expertise, and passion than as a researcher for the state. Outside of work she can be found at the beach, with family and friends, reading, and petting every dog she ever sees.
