Ann Huff Stevens



Dr. Stevens’ research focuses on workers and labor markets, the incidence and effects of job loss, and poverty and safety net dynamics. Her published work has documented the permanence of earnings losses for displaced workers, quantified the effects of displacement on the wealth levels and health of affected workers, and revealed the negative effects of job loss across generations. Her current work examines returns to career and technical education programs, EITC eligibility and deep poverty, and aspects of rising male non-employment. The founding director of the Center for Poverty Research at UC Davis, Stevens has served as an investigator on numerous grants from agencies including the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Institute for Education Sciences.
