Dr. Sarah Brauner Otto

Associate Professor
McGill University, Canada






Dr. Brauner Otto is a social demographer studying global family change with a focus on the relationship between social context (e.g. schools, community organizations) and demographic behaviors over the life course. She is particularly interested in which dimensions of social context (e.g. characteristics of schools or health services) matter the most and how context influences the individual. Brauner-Otto’s research in the coming years will focus on labor markets as a key dimension of social context influencing global family change.
