I am a Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an affiliate of the Center for Demography and Ecology and the Institute for Research on Poverty. My primary research interests are in social demography, family, and stratification. Much of my research focuses on the link between demographic change and social inequality. My current research examines the relationship between changes in union formation and dissolution, assortative mating, and income inequality in the United States. A second line of research examines the consequences of the reversal of the gender gap in education for marriage patterns and outcomes.
