CSDE Welcomes Four New External Affiliates!
Posted: 10/22/2021 (CSDE in the News)
Throughout the year, CSDE reviews applications from demographers working at other university, as well as those working in the private and public sector. 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, consult 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 four new external affiliates:
- Kim Korinek — Professor of Sociology and Director of the Asia Center at the University of Utah. Korinek’s research examines the mutually transformative effects of social demographic changes, like population aging and population mobility, and individual and family level experiences of receipt of support, living arrangements, socioeconomic mobility, health care utilization, and other outcomes related to wellbeing.
- Sam Jenness — Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University. Jenness is an infectious disease epidemiologist specializing in mathematical and computational approaches for studying the drivers of and prevention strategies for infectious disease through the framework of dynamic transmission networks. He leads the EpiModel Research Lab and also collaborates on several projects in both methods and applications for infectious disease epidemiology.
- Ethan Sharygin – Assistant Professor & Population Research Center Director at Portland State University. Sharygin’s recent work concerns demographic consequences of wildfire, in particular on how first responders can more accurately estimate population in fire zones and how applied demographers can estimate migration in and around disaster areas using innovative small area estimates methods.
- Jennifer Hook — Professor of Sociology at the University of Southern California. Her research areas include gender, family demography, inequality, work-family, social policy, and comparative sociology. Hook’s recent work examines the influence of country context on women’s employment, fathers’ time with children, and the division of household labor, as well as the impacts of state policy and practice on foster children’s outcomes and the economic vulnerability of parents involved with the child welfare system.
