Cynthia is a Sociology Doctoral Candidate and Trainee at the Population Studies Center. For her dissertation she’s using data from the Chitwan Valley Family Study to explore dynamics between husbands, wives and in-laws and how these relationships intertwine with childbearing behavior. She is also interested in social organization and environmental change, and is working on a study identifying key types of macro-level contextual changes that impact households’ transition from use of fuelwood to use of non-wood fuels.
