Alix Winter is the Chief Data Scientist for the Racial Profiling and Biased-Based Policing Investigations Unit at New York City's Civilian Complaint Review Board. She is also an Affiliated Research Scholar at Columbia University's Incite, where she was previously a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. Alix studies how institutional structures and actors reproduce racial and socioeconomic inequalities and how what happens in one domain refracts out to impact seemingly peripheral people and domains. Prior and ongoing projects examine these processes in relation to the criminal legal system and health.
Alix's work has been published in Annual Review of Sociology, Criminology, American Journal of Public Health, and other academic journals. She received her Ph.D. in Sociology and Social Policy from Harvard University, where she was a fellow in the Harvard Kennedy School’s Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy, and her B.A. in Health and Societies from the University of Pennsylvania.
