Research Interests: Dr. Murphy's research uses ethnographic methods to examine how poverty and inequality are experienced, structured, and reproduced across and within multiple domains of social life including neighborhoods, social networks, organizations, and the state. Current research projects examine the new suburban poverty as well as the causes and consequences of transportation insecurity.
