Collin is a Ph.D. candidate in Demography, and will be graduating in the Spring of 2015. His substantive research centers on mortality and health expectancies in the US, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America. He is interested in processes of aging and disability in low-income contexts, the effects of HIV on population-level health, and the contribution of social and sexual networks to health. Methodologically, his interests are in formal demography of life expectancy, multilevel modeling, and multistate life table methodology. Collin completed his undergraduate studies in Sociology with a concentration in Analysis and Research at the University of Wisconsin in 2008, and received a MA in Demography from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011.
