Kristin Turney

Associate Professor of Sociology, University of California, Irvine

Turney will use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study and propensity-score matching models to study the consequences of incarceration for family life. She will explore the short-and long-term consequences of fathers’ incarceration on romantic relationships, family members’ economic wellbeing, parenting practices, and health outcomes. She will also study how the effects of paternal incarceration on family life vary by race and ethnicity, educational attainment, residential status, and other factors.
