Sha Jiang a final year Ph.D. student in the Tuljapurkar Lab at Stanford University. Her research interests lie broadly in analyzing the impacts and trends of demographic transitions, with an emphasis on the role of uncertainty in demographic rates. Specific topics include mortality inequality and its implications for the Social Security system, the variation in fertility patterns and in lifetime reproductive success, and the variability in the life histories of animals and plants and its effect on population resilience. Changes in human fertility and mortality affect the dynamics of kinship networks and are another important part of her research. In this work, Jiang seeks to shed light on the impact of demographic transition on familial relationships and social structures.
