I am a Ph.D. candidate 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 interest is in subjective measures of hardship and wellbeing, especially in relation to public policies. My dissertation explores the extent to which welfare programs (e.g., tax credit payment and public health insurance expansion) affect food hardship and financial wellbeing reported by lower-income households in the U.S.
