CSDE Welcomes New Affiliates!

Posted: 10/26/2018 (CSDE Research)

CSDE’s Executive Committee is pleased to introduce four of our new faculty affiliates:

  • Soojin Oh Park – Assistant Professor of Education at UW.  Park’s work is focused on improving the quality of learning experiences, particularly among children in non-dominant communities (e.g., low-income, immigrant, and/or families of color).
  • Mauricio Sadinle – Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at UW. In his research, Sadinle develops methodology for a variety of applied and data-driven problems, including record linkage, nonignorable missing data and classification.
  • Peter Catron – Assistant Professor of Sociology at UW. Catron researches the socioeconomic mobility and assimilation of immigrants. He is interested in how mobility and labor market outcomes are interlinked with societal institutions and economic structures that may condition individual efforts to make it in America.
  • Gundula Proksch – Associate Professor of Architecture at UW. Proksch explores interdisciplinary practices in the built environment, novel approaches in sustainable design, and their potential to positively shape the futures of cities.

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.
