Poverty and Inequality Research Group

Poverty and Inequality Research Group

We build knowledge on how to reduce social inequality.

The Poverty and Inequality Group conducts research on the extent of poverty and economic hardship with a focus on how family policies support or hinder family functioning. The goal of our work is to build knowledge on the nature of social inequalities and how to reduce them.

We are actively recruiting curious and enthusiastic graduate students committed to understanding and reducing inequalities to join our group. We strongly encourage scholars from under-represented backgrounds to join us.
