(LEAFY-ah Yeh; hear my name)

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In Fall 2023, I will join the University of Toronto as an Assistant Professor of Sociology.

My research agenda centers on urgent challenges that deter the full inclusion of immigrant populations into host societies. Empirically, I have used a wide range of quantitative methods to analyze administrative and survey datasets.  My work has appeared in Population and Development Review, Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences, Socius: Sociological Research for a Dynamic World, and Advances in Medical Sociology

For two consecutive years (2019 & 20), I was awarded the Retirement and Disability Graduate Research Fellowship (funded by the U.S. Social Security Administration) to study immigrants' economic well-being in later life. One of my dissertation chapters on this topic (Forthcoming at Social Forces) received a Best Graduate Student Paper Award from the ASA Section on Aging and the Life Course.
