Agustina Laurito is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Administration. In her research, Agustina uses administrative and survey data and quasi experimental methods to answer questions at the intersection of social, education, and health policy. Her current research projects investigate the role of non-school factors, including the home country, in shaping immigrant students’ academic success and well-being, the interplay between SNAP and the National School Lunch program, the effect of neighborhood violence on child obesity, and the overall role that schools can play in ameliorating health deficiencies in childhood.
