CSDE Welcomes Four More Regional Affiliates!

Posted: 11/26/2018 (CSDE in the News)

CSDE’s Executive Committee is pleased to introduce four of our new Regional Research Affiliates:

  • Hedwig Lee – Professor, Sociology, Washington University in St. Louis. Lee is broadly interested in social determinants and consequences of population health and health disparities, with a particular focus on race/ethnicity, poverty, race-related stress, and the family.
  • Jake Rosenfeld – Associate Professor, Sociology, Washington University in St. Louis. Rosenfeld’s research and teaching focus on political and economic determinants of inequality in advanced democracies, particularly who gets paid what and why – and how this varies across time and place.
  • Julie Morris – Director of the Center for Social Science Instruction, Sociology, Western Washington University.  Morris’s research focuses on statistics, demography, and social determinants of health and medicalization; specifically related to stress, health behaviors, and mental health outcomes.
  • Amarachi Utah-Adjibola – Fellow, Global Growth and Global Development, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Amarachi’s primary research interests include food security, labor, migration, growth, structural transformation and poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa.

These affiliates bring a wealth of knowledge and unique approaches that enhances our community of demographers and collectively advances population science. We look forward to supporting each of them as they pursue their research. You can learn more about their individual research interests by visiting their affiliate pages, linked above.

If you are interested in becoming an affiliate or you know of someone who should become one, you can invite them to do so by directing them to this page.  Affiliate applications are reviewed quarterly, by CSDE’s Executive Committee.
