I’ll leave to others to provide recollections from my years at UNC, but here is a summary of my life since then:
After I got my degree, I spent 3 years as a postdoc at Population Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania working with Frank Furstenberg. Because I was geographically limited at the time, I stayed in eastern Pennsylvania working as a visiting professor for 2 years at different schools (Lehigh University and Lafayette College). I then spent 3 years as a tenure-track professor at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania before coming to Boling Green State University in 2011. I’m currently an Associate Professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. I’m also the Associate Director of BGSU’s Center for Family and Demographic Research (CFDR). I am married with two daughters, ages 8 and 11.
