Cornell Population Center Cornell Population Center Cornell Population Center

The Cornell Population Center (CPC) serves as the intellectual hub for demographic research and training at Cornell University. The CPC supports demographic research relating broadly to four core themes: (1) families and children; (2) health behaviors and disparities; (3) poverty and inequality; and (4) immigration and diversity. The CPC is a university-wide program serving 115 faculty affiliates from 24 different departments and is housed in the College of Human Ecology. Kelly Musick is CPC Director. Meg Cole is CPC Program Administrator.

Research Topic The CPC is honored to receive Atlantic Philanthropies' generous endowment to fund post-doctoral fellows in honor of former Cornell president, Frank H. T. Rhodes. Patrick Ishizuka is the most recent Frank H.T. Rhodes Post-doctoral Fellow. He has a Ph.D. in Sociology and Social Policy from Princeton University (2016). Broadly, his research investigates the causes and consequences of socioeconomic and gender inequalities in the family and labor market, and aligns closely with two of the four CPC research foci: families and children, and poverty and inequality. Other research he is conducting focuses on families, economic inequality, gender, and the work-family intersection. Patrick is in his second year and will continue to work on projects in collaboration with Kelly Musick while in residence.
