Biography

I am a Visiting Fellow at the Cornell Population Center. I received my Ph.D. in Demography from Princeton University in 2019.

I am a demographer specializing in the study of family and gender dynamics. I combine demographic and ethnographic methods to explore how socioeconomic development and inequality influence patterns of living arrangements, women's empowerment, union formation and intergenerational relationships. My work further highlights how local contexts shape changes and variations in these patterns. My in-depth study of household patterns in India undergirds this research approach, which my current work expands in a comparative perspective.

My dissertation research is published at Population and Development Review and has been presented at annual meetings of the Population Association of American and the American Sociological Association.
