Alexandrea Ravenelle

Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Ravenelle will work on a book examining the longer-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on precarious workers. She has conducted in-depth interviews with more than 70 workers to better understand how low-wage and restaurant workers and gig workers make sense of their experiences with the pandemic and how they assess risk.
