"I am a sociologist who studies families and relationships, politics and social movements. I have been knocking on doors and canvassing for elections ever since I was a small child and my mother took me with her to knock on doors in our apartment building complex in New York. I am a believer in talking to people as a way to make social change, and also as a way to learn about the world."

I am a social demographer who studies race, ethnicity, and family structure, the family's effect on children, and the history of the family. I am interested in mate selection as a social as well as a personal process.
