Kreg Steven Brown
Steven is a PhD candidate in the sociology department. He received his bachelor's degree in sociology (magna cum laude) from Princeton University. His primary area of research addresses racial inequality in the workplace and in the labor market, but he has also completed work and maintains interest in housing disparities and residential segregation.
His dissertation-in-progress examines potential root causes of racial differences in job loss and experiences of unemployment. The three empirical chapters consider career trajectories before job loss, differences in reasons for separation at job loss, and the how conditions at separation influence employment outcomes after job loss.
In addition to being a doctoral fellow in the Multidisciplinary Program, he is also the recipient of both the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship and the Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship. He currently resides in Washington, D.C.
