Ruffini studies labor and public economics, focusing on how income assistance programs, particularly health and education interventions, affect low-income populations. Some of her recent work explores the effects of universal free school meals on students' academic performance and discipline outcomes. She has also written on how the Earned Income Tax Credit affects economic well-being and on the labor market effects of full-day schooling.
