Ariel Kalil is Assistant Professor in the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. She received her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the University of Michigan.

With funding from a William T. Grant Faculty Scholars Award, she is currently conducting a multi-method, interdisciplinary research project focused on the impact of parental job loss on family processes and child development. Kalil is the 2003 recipient of the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Award for Early Research Contributions.
