I am an advanced dual-degree PhD candidate in Rural Sociology and Demography, with certificates in Teaching and Survey Methods.
Throughout my graduate work in rural sociology, demography, and policy, my research agenda has largely focused on inequality and stratification, population dynamics and development, and how these intersect with environmental change. My research often explores questions at the nexus of these foci, and includes a strong policy component.
My expected graduation date is Spring 2017.
