Angela Bruns

Postdoctoral Fellow, Population Studies Center.

Postdoctoral Mentor: Natasha V. Pilkauskas

Ph.D., University of Washington, Seattle

Dr. Bruns' research investigates the consequences of social and structural inequality for women and their families. She uses quantitative and qualitative methods to examine the ways in which several dimensions of inequality impact individual attitudes and behaviors regarding work, family, and health. Recent projects examine the collateral consequences of partner incarceration for women's employment outcomes, how the conditions of low wage workers' jobs influence the work-family interface, and the relationship between adolescents' exposure to single-parent families and their attitudes toward marriage.
