Erifer is a director at Whiteboard Advisors where he works with the K-12 research team on issues related to assessments and accountability, equity and diversity, and student health and well-being.

Prior to joining Whiteboard, he also worked as a building and operations analyst at WeWork and Northwestern Mutual. Erifer holds a bachelor’s degree in History from Yale University.
In his free time he enjoys watching foreign films, exploring local bookstores, photography, and dropping not-so-subtle hints that he’s from Chicago.
