Tsuyoshi (Yoshi) has a passion for evidence-based decision-making and analysis in the pursuit of inclusive and equitable social change. He offers an extensive background managing quantitative research on complex, multi-year projects and has a rich knowledge of health policy in particular—from reproductive health and justice to economic policies that drive health disparities. Yoshi is skilled at facilitating meetings, designing research methods, developing analysis plans, conducting advanced statistical analyses with large demographic and administrative datasets, and creating engaging reports and memos that distill complex data and information into actionable steps.
Prior to joining Harder+Company, Yoshi was a researcher at the Guttmacher Institute, where he supervised several large-scale research projects and provided data analysis for health policy research in domestic and international contexts. He has also served as a consultant at the California Department of Public Health where he developed recommendations on improving health outcomes for under-resourced communities of color through wealth-building policies. Outside of the office, Yoshi enjoys cooking elaborate meals, making room for dessert, and the perfect balance between exploring the outdoors and staying in.
