Thank you for visiting my tiny corner of the internet. I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at New York University (NYU). I am a social demographer with expertise in American fertility, social networks and survey methodology. I earned my PhD in Sociology and Demography at UC Berkeley and therefore am also trained as a formal demographer. I had a Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society post-doctoral fellowship at Columbia before beginning my work at NYU.

My published work has two overlapping subject-areas: abortion in the United States and people keeping secrets from each other. My current work expands from abortion to other areas of reproductive health.
