Mikaela H. Smith


Ph.D. Candidate
Sociology Department
University of California, Irvine

I am a fifth year graduate student at UC Irvine. My dissertation examines variation in public spending and need for reproductive healthcare services across the U.S. More broadly my research interests include the sociology of gender, public policy, and quantitative methods.

I have taught a course on quantitative methods, as well as served as teaching assistant for undergraduate and graduate statistics courses. Since 2016 I have served as statistics consultant for the sociology department, and from 2015-2016 I served as a UCI Pedagogical Fellow. I also offer private statistics tutoring for undergraduate students.
