Jane Choi is a PhD student in Sociology.

She has researched legacy and first-generation students at Ivy League colleges, families who are served by Head Start and Early Head Start programs, and parents of pre-K and kindergarten-age children in the New York City School District.

Previously, Jane worked as a Research Assistant in the Family Well-Being and Children’s Development policy area at MDRC and received a B.A. in Sociology from Columbia University. Jane was born in Seoul, S. Korea, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and received her early training as a researcher in New York City.
