Teresa Kroeger is a doctoral student at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University, where she is researching policies that affect the lives of socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals and families, those who are subject to gender and racial discrimination, and low- and middle-income workers. As a research assistant at EPI in 2016 and 2017, she worked closely with economists and researchers to analyze trends in the labor market affecting low- and middle-income workers. While at EPI, she specialized in research on gender and racial wage gaps, widespread wage stagnation and inequality, and the employment and wages of young high school and college graduates who are just entering the labor market. Kroeger’s work has been cited by numerous broadcast, radio, print, and online news outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and the Economic Report of the President. Before joining EPI in 2016, Kroeger conducted research at the American Institutes for Research and the Center for Economic and Policy Research.
