I am a Ph.D. student in Consumer Behavior and Family Economics (CBFE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Also, I am pursuing a doctoral minor in Public Affairs. My research interests are at the intersection of social policy and material hardship. My doctoral research explores the extent to which welfare programs (e.g., tax credit payment and public health insurance expansion) affect food insufficiency and financial struggles reported by lower-income households in the U.S.
