Phoebe Ho is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Korean Millennials Research Lab, housed in the Population Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research primarily focuses on families and their experiences with education and schooling in the U.S., with a particular emphasis on race/ethnicity, immigrant status, and social class. She is currently working on a book that takes a sociodemographic approach to examining diversity in the transition to adulthood among racial and ethnic minority and immigrant young adults. Her research appears in the The Sociological Quarterly, Social Science Research, Research in Social Stratification and Mobility, and Journal of Marriage and Family, among other venues. Her dissertation, which was awarded an AERA Dissertation Grant, compares multigenerational processes of educational reproduction and mobility among immigrant and native families in the U.S. She was previously an Institute of Education Sciences Fellow at Penn’s Graduate School of Education (2013-15).
