Research Interests: Inequality, poverty, gender, family, qualitative methods, decision-making
Allison Daminger is a Doctoral Student in Sociology & Social Policy. Her research centers on the ways broader societal inequalities affect family dynamics. Current projects examine the gendered division of "cognitive labor," or the mental work of remembering, planning, researching, and deciding. Originally from New Jersey, Allison studied anthropology and global health at Princeton University and wrote a thesis on HIV/AIDS treatment in Guatemala City. After graduation in 2012, she worked first for an urban agriculture nonprofit and later for a nonprofit consulting firm that uses insights from behavioral science to solve social problems.
