Lisa D. Pearce

Off-Campus Research Affiliate, Population Studies Center.

Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, University of North Carolina.

Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University

Dr. Pearce studies how religion shapes family formation, relationships, adolescent self-image, aspirations, and achievement. With ongoing research set in both the U.S. and Nepal, her current U.S. work focuses on how religious ideology, practice, and salience in youth relate to subsequent education-, career-, and family-related attitudes and behavior. In Nepal, she studies how religion is related to family formation and how household-level population dynamics influence environmental consumption. Pearce conducts research with a mix of survey and ethnographic methods.
