Research Associate

Why LEO?

"I love telling stories with data. When it comes to ending poverty, it's tempting to oversimplify the story. I joined LEO because I wanted to discover the intricate details of poverty in an environment that embraces its complexity."


In her current position, Mia helps research faculty and partners by managing projects and assisting with data analysis. Previously, Mia earned her B.A. in Economics and Philosophy from the University of Notre Dame. Her research interests include homelessness and immigration. More broadly, she is interested in making economic research more human-centered.
