Scott T Yabiku
Assistant Professor, Center for Population Dynamics, Arizona State University
Dr. Yabiku is a social demographer specializing in family and the intersection of family with other areas in both the United States and Nepal. Issues he studies include fertility, self-esteem, education, aging, and marriage. He also focuses on how families and individuals within families change as the social contexts around them change. He is also interested in the area of population and environment, both internationally (Nepal and China) and in the United States (with an emphasis on the desert southwest). Another area of his research is substance use and prevention.
