Nicholas Croce’s work focuses on analyzing issues of inequality and evaluating promising policy solutions.

At Mathematica, Croce works on projects related to homelessness, disaster recovery, and childhood nutrition. In his role on the homelessness engagement, Croce systematically reviews the latest empirical research on policy interventions that address homelessness. Drawing on his professional experience, Croce is contributing to a report on disaster displacement for a federal client. In addition, he helps with recruitment and outreach for a national study of a nutrition program.

Croce holds an M.P.P. in poverty alleviation from the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University and an M.A. in sociology from the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Syracuse University. He has worked at public and nonprofit institutions including the American Red Cross, New York Disaster Interfaith Services, the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights, and the U.S. Government Accountability Office. His past research has examined the division of the labor market, employment and gig work, and Progressive Era unemployment programs. Improving public well-being is important to Croce, because he has witnessed firsthand how changing economies can affect economic stability and opportunity.
