Elizabeth is a postdoctoral researcher working with Dr. Dan Conroy-Beam. She studies the process, dynamics, and consequences of mate choice in contexts where arranged marriage is the norm. She primarily conducts research in Nepal and uses qualitative and quantitative data sources. She is interested in how parents and offspring negotiate their own mate preferences during spouse choice decisions, and how the process of choosing a spouse impacts social relationships, socioeconomic status, and reproductive health outcomes. Elizabeth earned her PhD in Anthropology at UCSB.
