Addo is an Assistant Professor of Consumer Science at UW- Madison, where she is also an affiliate of the Center for Demography and Ecology, Center for Financial Security, and Institute for Research on Poverty. Dr. Addo’s research focuses on family and household consumer behavior, family formation processes, and racial wealth inequality. Her primary demographic focus is on women and children and economically vulnerable populations, such as the low-income and young adults.
