About Katherine

Moos-Headshot-2015-5I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and an Economist at the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI). I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the New School for Social Research. My research interests center on the intersection between the political economy of social reproduction and the meaning and effect of state-policy interventions. Prior to beginning my graduate education, I worked for a number of nonprofit advocacy organizations focused on domestic poverty and the U.S. social safety net.
