My research seeks to explore the financial circumstances tied to alternative housing arrangements. It is through this research that I wish to focus my attention on the household unit; empowering these agents to challenge normative housing behaviors. I strive to gain an understanding of what defines housing norms, how housing-related decisions are made, and what can be done to mitigate the impact of housing on overall financial distress.
