Carmen Brick is a sociologist whose research focuses upon low-wage work, stratification processes, and social policy. Her dissertation research uses mixed methods to examine the potential of state-level Earned Income Tax Credits (EITCs) to reduce poverty and inequality by studying the contexts of their adoption. Her other research projects study the effects of firm-level sorting on the gender wage gap and the disparities in policing related to mental health and substance use statuses. She was previously a Presidential Management Fellow and is currently a Scholars Strategy Network Graduate Fellow and a grant recipient of the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy.
