I am working with the MPC Diversity Fellowship program and Kari Williams this summer to write blog posts about using IPUMS data for diversity and equity research. After this fellowship, I hope to incorporate population data into my dissertation research. My current dissertation plan is to research equity in predictive modeling, particularly with regard to multiple, intersecting identity groups. I hope to incorporate population data available in IPUMS to take advantage of the rich, individual-level detail it offers on concepts like race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.
