Karen Hermans graduated in July 2019 as a Master in Social and Economic sciences at the University of Antwerp. She wrote a masterthesis about the financial impact of food aid on the income adequacy of social assistance benefits in Belgium. Since then she has been working as a junior researcher at the Herman Deleeck Center for Social Policy, where she conducts further research into food aid in a European context and how this is linked to worrying poverty figures and the (in)adequacy of minimum income protection in contemporary welfare states.
