Research Interests: Child well-being, transitions to adulthood, marriage, and data quality. She is particularly interested in how different types of family structures affect child well-being. She has examined whether timing of orphanhood is associated with early sexual debut and early marriage in four Sub-Saharan African countries. She has also explored whether parental divorce affects children’s schooling in rural Malawi. Her research on data quality investigates the reliability of retrospective marriage histories collected in a longitudinal survey in rural Malawi. As a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center for Population Dynamics (CePoD), she works on a multi-country project focused on migration and child well-being in Mexico, Mozambique, and Nepal.
