Daniel Alain Evrard is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at Harvard University. Spanning multiple levels of analysis and methodologies, his work is broadly concerned with the relationship between economic and social change, and the effects of those changes on the contours of contemporary inequality. More concretely, he is currently examining how processes of macro-economic change and social categorization have interacted to produce divergent developmental trajectories amongst deindustrialized cities within the United States.

Prior to graduate school, D. A. served six years in the United States Air Force as a C-130 Crew Chief, separating from active duty with the rank of Staff Sergeant. Following his service, he graduated with high honors from the University of Arizona, where he examined the relationship between labor market deunionization and the evolution of American economic inequality since the 1970’s. He then applied these findings to the urban context in order to better understand how this labor market transformation has altered the socioeconomic conditions of the "barely-working class" inhabiting deindustrialized cities.
