Biography

Anna joined the MPC in 2018 as a Population Studies Predoctoral Trainee via the Sociology Department. 

Anna's research examines the nexus between growing income inequality, workforce composition, and fertility in the American context. She is interested in teasing out the individual, family unit, and macro-level structural changes that drive reproductive decision-making vis-a-vi economic recessions. Anna is curious how changes in the economy plot against fertility trends, as well as how labor market shifts—particularly deindustrialization and precarity—impact differential fertility behavior.
