Three New Faculty to Join the Department in 2016
Dalton Conley, Adam Goldstein and and Ellis Monk will join the department in the fall of 2016.
Dalton Conley is currently University Professor of the Social Sciences at New York University and a Visiting Professor in the sociology department at Princeton University. His current work applies econometric methods for causal inference to genome-wide data available in social surveys to model gene-by-environment interaction effects. He is also interested in mapping the genetic architecture of phenotypic plasticity, interrogating the assumptions underlying models for heritability, and characterizing social and genetic sorting as distinct processes.
Adam Goldstein is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholars in Health Policy Research Program at the Institute for Quantitative Science at Harvard University. His research examines the social consequences of financial capitalism in the contemporary United States.
Ellis Monk is currently the Neubauer Family Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago. His research interests include racial categorization, classification, and stratification, political sociology, health, theory, sociology of the body, social psychology and cognition, Brazil, and Geometric Data Analysis.
