I am a PhD Candidate in Sociology at McGill University, in the Population Dynamics specialization. I research fertility preferences, factors impacting realization of preferences, and survey methodology. In particular, I analyze what people actually mean by the reports they give about their family dispositions in demographic and social surveys, assessing the role of explicit values, socializing influences, normative ecologies, response biases, implicit or unconscious schemas, and other factors. Secondarily, I then assess what kinds of social, structural, and policy factors mediate the relationship between these survey statements and people's ultimate family outcomes.
