Jeong Hyun Oh

Spiegelman Postdoctoral Fellow

Jeong Hyun (“Johanna”) Oh holds a PhD in sociology from the University of Chicago, where she also earned an MA in sociology. Her research is focused on how health and economic inequalities in sub-Saharan Africa are informed by demographic processes. She examines how educational expansion alters labor market outcomes among “moderately educated” women and its implications for wealth inequality and diverging family experiences.  As a Harvard Mortimer Spiegelman Postdoctoral Fellow in Demographic Studies, Oh seeks to link demographic theories and methods with the inequality literature to document how educational expansion shifts social relations at the individual and group level, with an emphasis on producing policy-relevant research.
