Location: 6050 ISR - Thompson

Melanie Wasserman's research examines the mechanisms underlying gender differences in labor market and educational outcomes. Her current work investigates whether workplace policies differentially shape men and women's occupational choices and family formation decisions. She is additionally interested in the determinants of the female-favorable gap in educational achievement that has emerged in much of the developed world. In Fall 2017, she will begin as an Assistant Professor at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
Adriana Reyes's research focuses on family demography and health disparities across the life course. In a recent project she examined race/ethnic differences in the formation of multifamily households, their economic benefits, and financial organization. Her current work continues her investigation of intergenerational family relations by examining not just living arrangements but economic transfers across generations and their consequences for a variety of well-being outcomes. She is also interested in how these intergenerational family dynamics have changed over time.

PSC Brown Bag seminars highlight recent research in population studies and serve as a focal point for building our research community.
