Tyler Babich joined CHHS as a Law & Policy Analyst in 2018 shortly after completing an externship with the Center and graduating from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. While in law school, Tyler earned dual certificates representing concentrations in Cybersecurity & Crisis Management and in Health Law.
Tyler’s work with CHHS started with a role in designing online courses for cybersecurity and national security law for the NSA. In the spring of 2018, Tyler testified before two committees in the Maryland General Assembly to provide information about election security. His externship capstone project looked at current emergency management practices in outer space and proposed new policies for the rapidly changing field.
That autumn, Tyler was assigned to the Prince George’s County Office of Emergency Management where he served as a NIMS Officer. This role included reviewing compliance with the latest edition of the National Incident Management System, updating relevant training materials, and other duties that helped maintain the County Emergency Operations Center.
Currently, Tyler is working in a team of CHHS staff to develop a new Pre-Disaster Recovery Plan for Montgomery County.
While a law student, Tyler served low-income clients with Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security claims. He also analyzed privacy laws applicable to insurance policies to help a youth health clinic better serve their patients.
Before law school, Tyler graduated from the University of Maryland – College Park with a B.A. in Government & Politics and a Minor in Asian American Studies. He also taught elementary and middle school classes at the Mother of God School in Gaithersburg, MD.
