Angie L. De Groot
Senior Research Scientist


Angie De Groot is a senior research scientist in the Institute for Public Research. Since 2007, she has led and contributed to substantively different projects on such topics as homeland security, emergency management, and public health. She has experience designing and evaluating preparedness exercises, assessing capabilities, analyzing real-world operations, and developing data-driven strategic and operational plans.

Much of De Groot's work has centered on creating policy and plans for new and evolving missions at federal departments and agencies, and on analyzing real-world events to identify lessons learned. In 2019, she led the planning for a new emergency support function under the National Response Framework, created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to promote the stabilization of critical lifelines (e.g., water, power, health care) and facilitate coordination between the government and the private sector. In 2015, she co-led a comprehensive review of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' domestic and international responses to the 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic to identify steps the department should take to ensure that it can effectively manage future contagions. The review culminated in a public report authored by an independent panel that was convened and supported by CNA.

De Groot earned an M.A. in international affairs from The George Washington University and a B.A. in international studies and Spanish from the University of Iowa.
