Elizabeth Eve Bruch

Research Associate Professor, Population Studies Center.

Associate Professor, Sociology.

Associate Professor, Complex systems.

Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles

Dr. Bruch's work combines statistical models of individuals' choice behaviors with formal modeling approaches that capture the implications of those behaviors for aggregate social patterns. She has developed "cognitively plausible" statistical models of neighborhood and mate choice, and is applying models from behavioral ecology to understand how individuals adapt their mate seeking strategies to particular romantic markets.
