Cherrie Nicole Bucknor is a Ph.D. student in sociology at Harvard University. Her research broadly examines the causes and consequences of economic and racial inequality in wealth, income, and the labor market. Her current projects examine how racial disparities in extended-family wealth contribute to disparities in the transition to homeownership, as well as the impact of right-to-work laws on Black workers. Bucknor has previously worked as a research associate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, where she conducted research on the labor market experiences of poor and otherwise-marginalized workers and the benefits of union representation. Her work is supported by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies and the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. Bucknor holds a B.A. in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Public Administration from American University.
