About Andrew Halpern-Manners

Andrew Halpern-Manners is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology. He received his Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Minnesota, along with an MPP in policy analysis. His current projects encompass two broad streams of research: one examining the stratifying effects of education, both intra- and intergenerationally, and another investigating the prevalence and consequences of panel conditioning (or “time-in-survey” effects) in longitudinal social science surveys. Specific topics of interest include the causal effects of education on health and longevity; cross-over effects of education within social networks; and methods for identifying panel conditioning in survey research. His recently published work has appeared in the American Journal of Sociology, Demography, Social Forces, and Sociological Methods and Research.
