Assistant Professor of Economics, Chloe East has received an Early Career Award from the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. This prestigious award is given to junior faculty for policy-related research on labor market issues. East's research examines the effects of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program ("Food Stamps") on adults' labor market and health outcomes. Using a large, recent set of policy changes that affected documented immigrants’ eligibility across states and over time from 1996 to 2003, East’s work evaluates the effects of Food Stamps on foreign-born adults’ labor supply and health outcomes in the short-run and long-run.
