CSDE Welcomes Five New External Affiliates!

Posted: 11/19/2021 (CSDE in the News)

Throughout the year, CSDE reviews applications from demographers working at other universities, as well as those working in the private and public sectors. These affiliates are keen to engage with CSDE’s scholarly community. As external affiliates they are able to access our computing resources (including data and software) and online seminars or workshops, consults with our scientific staff, and collaborate easily with CSDE’s UW faculty on research projects. Non-UW demographers interested in affiliating with CSDE can click here to apply. This quarter, we welcome five new external affiliates:

  • D. Mark AndersonAssociate Professor, Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics, Montana State University. Dr. Anderson’s fields of study include applied microeconomics, health economics, economic history.
  • Michael EspositoAssociate Professor of Sociology, Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Esposito investigates how broad, racialized social systems – and their constituent institutions – are configured in ways that layer privileges on white populations and hazards on BIPOC populations. His research ultimately seeks to understand how these systematically-distributed privileges and penalties arrive on population health.
  • Dennis HoganProfessor Emeritus of Population Studies and Sociology, Brown University. Dr. Hogan served as Director of the Population Studies and Training Center until 2000. He is interested in the life course of American adolescents and the ways opportunities in local environments and resources of parents are converted into successful transitions to adult life.
  • Jennifer LairdAssociate Professor of Sociology, City University of New York. Dr. Laird’s research focuses on poverty and inequality. As a quantitative sociologist, Dr. Laird conducts her research using data visualization, modeling, and microsimulation methods. She has published articles that investigate the sources of poverty differences across U.S. states, employment inequality in the public sector, and unemployment among Mexican immigrants.
  • Claire RothschildSenior Technical Advisor in Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategic Evidence and Learning at Population Services International (PSI). Dr. Rothschild’s research interests include sexual and reproductive health, contraceptive dynamics, person-centered quality of care, and reproductive justice.
