Debt. Most of us work hard to stay out of it. Dalié Jiménez, on the other hand, can’t seem to get enough.
The UConn law professor and bankruptcy scholar has spent much of the past eight years immersed in the topic, examining debt from a range of angles rooted in her prior work as a policy fellow at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Her research and writing explores debtor-creditor law, credit and debt collection markets, credit reporting, student loans, financial distress of American families, and more. Jiménez has been widely interviewed on the subject, and is a go-to debt expert for John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ show on HBO.
