Alix Winter received her PhD in Sociology and Social Policy from Harvard University, where she was a fellow in the Harvard Kennedy School’s Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy. She studies how institutions and neighborhoods shape social inequalities, focusing, in particular, on the criminal justice system and the social determinants of health. Prior and ongoing projects examine these processes in relation to the criminal courts, the social patterning of lead exposure and its consequences, and opioid prescription rates. Alix's work has appeared in Criminology, Law & Social Inquiry, Annual Review of Sociology, American Journal of Public Health, and other academic journals.
Alix is currently a Postdoctoral Research Scholar working on the Understanding Autism project at Columbia University's Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics. She received her BA in Health and Societies from the University of Pennsylvania.
