Thai V. Le

Thai, currently a Ph.D. student at the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California (USC), is studying the causes and effects of institutionalized inequities on community development and social mobility. His work and research have included the intersection of mental health and homelessness, disaggregating Asian American Pacific Islander data, the efficacy of social impact bonds on relieving homelessness, food security in low-income communities, and post-natural disaster development among marginalized groups. Prior to his time at USC, Thai’s experience was predominantly centered on international development such as his work on education in South Korea and youth development in Indonesia through the Peace Corps. Thai holds degrees in International Development Studies, Asian American Studies, and Political Science from UCLA, and a degree in Public Policy from USC.
