Skye Allmang is a Post-Doctoral Associate at Rutgers School of Social Work. Her research focuses on understanding the underlying causes and consequences of inequality in access to employment. She is particularly interested in: (1) the mechanisms leading to unequal employment outcomes, such as occupational segregation and workplace discrimination, (2) the long-term effects of precarious employment on health and well-being, and (3) program and policy interventions to improve employment prospects for young adults. She holds a Master of Social Welfare and a PhD in Social Welfare from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), as well as a Master of Public Policy from the Heller School at Brandeis University. Prior to her graduate studies at UCLA, she worked as a youth job-training practitioner at a nonprofit organization in Southern California.
