Pronouns he/him

Andrew Wen is passionate about addressing social and economic inequalities. His work has focused on equity, early childhood, and nutrition programs, including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) policy.

Since joining Mathematica in 2022, Wen has written code, authored reports, and developed specifications for microsimulation modeling. He coordinated with state agencies to receive administrative data on school meals, and wrote specifications and code to standardize the data and analyze results from diagnostic checks. Wen has experience creating data documentation, including the user’s manual for a data file for the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey. For a study funded by the Public Policy Institute of AARP, Wen cleaned and analyzed Consumer Expenditure Survey data, producing data tables that compared the spending habits of older adults against SNAP deduction rules and writing the report’s methodology supplement.

Before joining Mathematica, Wen worked as a grant writer at a Feeding America food bank in Philadelphia, as a communications specialist at a Federally Qualified Health Center, and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Indonesia. He holds an M.P.A. from the Brooks School of Public Policy at Cornell University and a B.A. in economics and English literature from Boston University.
