avatar for Amy Khare

Amy Khare

University of Chicago
Ph.D. Candidate
Amy Khare’s research seeks to shape solutions to persistent poverty and structural inequality, with a specific focus on affordable housing, community development, and market-driven policies. Her central line of inquiry examines how urban politics influences the privatization of public resources in a restructured U.S. welfare state. She aims to produce scholarship that is guided by and has implications for local activism and policy changes.

Amy is currently a Doctoral Candidate at The University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. Her dissertation investigates how the recent economic recession and subsequent political responses have altered the implementation of mixed-income public housing reforms. Amy has published in Urban Affairs Review, Journal of Urban Affairs, and Cityscape. She also works as a Research Associate at the Urban Institute’s Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center, most recently serving as a lead researcher on the national evaluation of HUD’s Choice Neighborhoods Initiative. Amy’s professional experience in the field of community change serves as the catalyst to her scholarship. She holds a Masters of Social Welfare from the University of Kansas.
