Diana Enriquez is a PhD candidate in Sociology at Princeton University. She studies labor, technology, informal economies, and law, particularly in the US and Latin America (Mexico and Colombia). Her dissertation research focuses on high-skill freelancers as a subset of the alternative workforce facing new challenges before and during COVID-19. Her first article on freelancers was presented at the Federal Reserve (Atlanta) conference on Uneven Outcomes in the Labor Market (2021).

She received her B.A. in Political Science from Yale University in 2013, where she wrote her thesis about different tools Colombian cartels used to influence political campaigns between 1970-2000. Before beginning her Ph.D., Diana was a researcher for a think tank/hedge fund in New York City and lead the research and fact checking team within TED's Content and Editorial team.
