Hope Harvey is a postdoctoral associate in the department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University. She will receive her Ph.D. in sociology and social policy in November 2018 from Harvard University. Her research addresses questions related to poverty, families, housing and neighborhoods, and access to social programs. 

Harvey's dissertation focuses on families with children who live in doubled-up, or shared, households. This project combines longitudinal, in-depth interview data with nationally-representative survey data to examine the causes and consequences of different types of doubled-up households for children and families.

In another line of research, Harvey examines the dynamics of residential decision-making. On-going projects explore how parents' understandings of their residential move shape their housing search process, the frequency and potential implications of moves made without a housing search, and how parents conceptualize neighborhood racial and ethnic composition.
