Speaker Biographies: 

Sarah Hayford studies family formation and reproductive health, primarily in the United States and sub-Saharan Africa. She is interested in how people make plans about these behaviors and who is able to carry out these plans. For example, in one ongoing project, Hayford is exploring race-ethnic differences in unintended childbearing in the United States. Another project compares the influences of community norms and women’s empowerment on mother’s plans for their daughters’ circumcision in nine countries in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, she is beginning a large cross-national data collection project studying the impact of parental migration on children's socioemotional development, educational outcomes, and family formation behaviors in Mexico, Mozambique, and Nepal
