Rose Werth is a Sociology PhD student at Northwestern University whose research aims to understand how organizations and institutions shape well-being across communities. Connecting with N3’s mission, her work focuses on how organizational ties and networks affect inequality. Prior to Northwestern, Rose spent four years as a research analyst at the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) where she worked on projects related to crime and violence, policing, jails, homelessness, and inequality. As she is an active participant in the theater community, half of the people in her life assume she moved to Chicago not to study neighborhoods and networks but to pursue a career in improv comedy. Despite this disappointment, her family still supports her work.
