Biography

Professor Kaushal’s research in the past five years has centered on two broad themes—first, the interaction between state welfare programs and the well-being of low-income families, and second, how various policies and events have affected the well-being of immigrants. Her current research focuses on issues that are critical to the on-going immigration debate in the country. She recently completed a paper examining how in-state college tuition for undocumented persons affects their education and earnings; this paper has been cited in recent legislative debates on this controversial policy across the country.
