Meet the recently elected Carolina Population Center Faculty Fellows

Sep 18, 2017

The Carolina Population Center's Faculty Fellows elected five UNC faculty members to join the CPC Fellows program. The Fellows are CPC's permanent and vital core, and the center devotes its resources to facilitating their research. Currently, there are 65 Fellows from 15 different UNC departments.

Elizabeth Frankenberg is a Professor of Sociology.

Frankenberg's research focuses on individual and family response to change and the role of community, broadly construed, in individual behaviors and outcomes. She has invested heavily in developing and implementing innovative and ambitious designs for data collection to support her own research and that of the scientific and policy communities more broadly. These investments center on three projects: the Indonesia Family Life Survey (IFLS), The Worker Iron Status Evaluation (WISE), and the Study of the Tsunami Aftermath and Recovery (STAR). Her work intersects with scholars across a number of disciplines, including demography, sociology, economics, geography, and public health.

Frankenberg is CPC's new Director, as of 7/1/2017.

Jason Davis is an Assistant Professor of Geography.

Davis's research focuses on the ramifications of migrant absences and remittances on the well-being of left behind family members-especially children. He uses longitudinal, retrospective and qualitative data to explore the influence of different migration dynamics on left-behind children's educational attainment and nutrition, migration-related fertility, land-use change, and population-environment relationships. His work has largely been concentrated in Central and South America, but he is expanding his geographic interest areas to Sub-Saharan Africa and the Philippines.

Davis was a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Carolina Population Center from 2012 until 2017.

Paul Delamater is an Assistant Professor of Geography.

Delamater's research focuses on spatial components of health care access and utilization as well as disease modeling. He uses methods that employ geographic information systems (GIS) and statistical/spatial analysis to better understand population health issues such as childhood vaccination, herd immunity, and vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States.

Joanna "Asia" Maselko is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology.

Maselko's research focuses on the fields of social epidemiology and global mental health, specifically, how the social context influences developmental risk trajectories over the life course. She studies the relationship between maternal mental health and child development and how families respond to changing social conditions over the life course. She has conducted research on perinatal depression intervention in Pakistan, adolescent mental health in South India and Nepal, and depression among elderly and their caregivers in Sri Lanka.

Kat Tumlinson is an Assistant Professor of Maternal and Child Health.

Tumlinson's research focuses on facility-level barriers to family planning in low-income countries. Her work on international family planning is deeply informed by her prior experience managing a teen pregnancy prevention program at Planned Parenthood of North Central Florida and by her experiences living and working in a number of low- and middle-income countries.

Tumlinson was a Carolina Population Center Predoctoral Trainee between 2009 and 2014, and a Postdoctoral Scholar from 2016-2017.
