Fernanda Escobar is a Research Associate at the Institute on Assets and Social Policy. As part of the research team, she does quantitative analysis of national data to help understand the impact of policies on the racial wealth gap.
Her prior jobs at the Consulate of Ecuador in Boston and the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition provided her with a better understanding of how sound and well-developed policies can tackle the economic and social disparities between the immigrant community and American society. In addition, Fernanda has worked with disadvantaged communities in her home country, Ecuador, where she interned at the World Bank and volunteered with several NGOs.
She holds a Master's degree in Public Policy with a concentration in poverty alleviation from the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. During her academic training, Fernanda focused on American immigration and international development.
