I am a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley in the Departments of Sociology and Demography. My research leverages recent advances in formal demographic and statistical methodologies to gain new purchase on old questions about the family: its configurations, transformations, and meanings.
My latest work utilizes microsimulation techniques to investigate the link between race differences in mortality and race differences in kinship over the life course. This research provides the first plausible estimates of nationally-representative kinship networks for black and white Americans born over the past century.
