Hi, I'm Zach.

My research focuses on the measurement, causes, and consequences of poverty and social inequality across the United States and European Union. 

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Social Policy at Bocconi University in Milan, and a Senior Research Fellow at Columbia University's Center on Poverty and Social Policy. At Bocconi, I lead an ERC Starting Grant (see ExpPov) on the experience of poverty in the post-industrial economy.
