Nour Abdul-Razzak, Ph.D.

Hello! I'm a Research Director at the University of Chicago Inclusive Economy Lab and a Research Associate at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy.  

I am an applied microeconomist interested in research that addresses the structural foundations of inequality.  At the Inclusive Economy Lab, I oversee and direct research projects related to guaranteed income.  I also have several projects focusing on the criminal legal system, with research exploring the role of police discretion and measurements of crime, interventions that reduce criminal legal involvement and violence exposure among youth, legal supports for youth at risk of incarceration, and the impact of free prison communication technology. 

Prior to joining the Inclusive Economy Lab and the Harris School, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago Crime Lab and Education Lab.  I have a B.S. in civil engineering and political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a PhD in public policy from the University of Chicago.
