Alexa Eisenberg is a postdoctoral research fellow with Poverty Solutions. Their research seeks to monitor, evaluate, and inform policies and programs that can promote housing and health justice in Detroit. They have years of experience integrating interview data, administrative property records, and community-based knowledge to understand how the implementation of housing policies and programs impact housing stability and health equity in Detroit. Their current work seeks to prevent and mitigate the harms of property tax foreclosure and strengthen tenants rights, rental code enforcement, and eviction protections. Previously, Eisenberg worked as a graduate student researcher with Poverty Solutions and trained as a public health demographer with the University of Michigan’s Population Studies Center. Eisenberg holds a PhD in public health from the University of Michigan and a master’s degree from the University of Miami.
