Biography:

I maintain a keen interest in understanding the influence of early life circumstances, individual behavior, and parental influences on teen mothers and fathers’ socioeconomic trajectories. My research interests are related to population research as I focus on the characterization of teenage parents' demographic characteristics over time (e.g., family formation, number of children, work participation) and how these factors affect their socio and economic outcomes over the life course.
