Andrea Ringer joined the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO) in June 2017 as a Research Associate. She contributes to project development and assists in managing impact evaluations carried out by the LEO team, currently in the areas of senior citizen services, prisoner re-entry, and adult college completion. While a student at Notre Dame, Andrea worked with the service organization La Casa de Amistad in South Bend and assisted with economic research in Nicaragua. With this background, she was drawn to LEO because of its standard of top-tier impact evaluations to identify effective anti-poverty programs in the United States.
