  • Lenna Nepomnyaschy is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work, where she teaches courses in applied regression analysis, poverty and inequality, and social policy. Her research interests are broadly focused on how poverty and inequality impact child and family health and well-being. One line of work examines the impact of social policies, particularly related to fathers and child support, on the well-being of families and children. Another line of work examines socioeconomic and racial/ethnic disparities in child health and development. Current research projects focus on understanding the effects of nonresident fathers on children’s food insecurity and the well-being of children in immigrant families who have a nonresident father.
