Kristin Turney Named RSF Visiting Scholar

Wednesday, Jan 23, 2019

We at the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study are happy to congratulate Kristin Turney for being named a RSF Visiting Scholar for the class of 2019–2020!

Turney will use data from the FFCWS 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.

The Russell Sage Foundation's Visiting Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for select scholars in the social, economic and behavioral sciences to pursue their research and writing while in residence at the Foundation’s New York headquarters.
