He currently serves on the faculty of Temple University, where he is Assistant Professor of Political Science and a faculty fellow in the Public Policy Lab (PPL). Professor Crawford was previously a lecturer and visiting scholar at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA).

His research, teaching and practice concern racialized public problems, culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE), and targeted interventions that promote the well-being of communities, families and children. Professor Crawford is interested in attitudes and behaviors (about politics and policy) that contribute to and are formed by race and class-based inequalities in public systems, especially in citizen-state interactions and program participation. His work has been published in the Journal of Urban Affairs, Perspectives on Politics, Urban Affairs Review, and is forthcoming in Public Integrity.

Professor Crawford received his doctorate (and M.A.) in Political Science from The Ohio State University and has a B.A. in the same discipline from Howard University. He is an alumnus of the Faculty Leaders Program (FLP) in Policy Research and Analysis at Pardee RAND Graduate School and the Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) with the Annie E. Casey Foundation. In addition, he has certificates in survey research, social enterprise development, and non-profit management and leadership. Prior to joining Temple, he was a pre-doctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
