Research Interests: Dr. Hartnett is a demographer and sociologist studying American families and fertility. Her research examines how social factors influence decision-making around childbearing, with a special focus on unintended pregnancy. A second area of research investigates the exchange of resources within families and its implications for inequality, focusing on financial transfers to young adults, caregiving support to older adults, and qualities of intergenerational relationships.
