Joel Mittleman

I am a sociologist studying inequalities in the lives vulnerable youth, particularly children of color and sexual minorities.

My dissertation uses new population-based data sources to study the educational experiences and outcomes of sexual minority youth. The first study from the dissertation has been published in Educational Researcher.
