Zoom Recording

Assistant Professor Wrigley-Field is a formal demographer and a sociologist. Her work integrates demographic methods, designed to shift perspectives between population-level patterns and individual-level transitions between social statuses, with a sociological approach to the study of inequality, in which multiple dimensions of stratification interact in specific settings. She uses formal, statistical, and simulation analysis to reveal new challenges in recovering information about inequality in the presence of such selection. Her work explores how demographic theory can be revised to incorporate more substantively realistic models of heterogeneity and inequality within populations.
