Abigail Weitzman

Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Texas at Austin

Weitzman will investigate how neighborhood violence—homicides in particular—shape pivotal outcomes in the lives of young women. She will link panel survey data and administrative data on local homicides to explore how women’s relationship dynamics, mental health, and college enrollment change with homicides occurring close to their home. She will also study how such exposure to neighborhood violence has consequences for economic and social stratification.
