I am a PhD candidate in the sociology department at Princeton University. My
dissertation is an ethnographic study of the migrant workforce that enabled
the shale oil boom in western North Dakota. More generally, my interests
include culture, social interactions, economic life, morality, social theory,
and ethnographic methods. More information on my research and teaching is
available at carybeckwith.net.
At Princeton, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology and Social Policy and a member of the Office of Population Research.
I study the causes and consequences of health disparities, with an emphasis on the family and community environments that foster or impede healthy behaviors among children and adolescents.
