Dr. Berman also oversaw the Healthy Incentives Pilot evaluation, among other studies related to healthy eating and food access. Prior research areas include agriculture and food systems development in the context of economic change, job quality and employment opportunities, and health insurance access among low-income households. Dr. Berman previously held positions as a visiting professor at Beloit College and an adjunct professor of Sociology at Georgetown University where she taught the courses, Food, Farms, and Society, and Sociology of health and illness. She received her Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
