I'm the Vice President of Research at Arnold Ventures. My efforts to improve research transparency and reproducibility have been featured in Wired, New York Times, The Atlantic, Slate, The Economist, and more.

I have given advice to DARPA, IARPA (the CIA’s research arm), the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team on rigorous research processes. I've published in top journals (such as Science and BMJ) on how to make research more accurate.

I have a Ph.D. in education policy from the University of Arkansas, where I studied econometrics, statistics, and program evaluation; a J.D. with honors from Harvard Law School, where I was an editor of the Harvard Law Review; and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music performance from the University of Georgia.

I have been a reviewer for Science, Bioinformatics, and BMJ. I'm on the board of the Harvard Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center.

I'm the author of Acting White(Yale Univ. Press 2010), a book on the history of education in the African-American community. Sandra Yamate of the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession said, "This groundbreaking book is a must-read for anyone interested in diversity and inclusion issues." On The New Republic's website, John McWhorter called Stuart's work "the best race book of the year."

I recorded an album titled, "From Mozart to Tchaikovsky: A Classical Guitar Collection for Children," available on Amazon.
