Fred H. Bixby Chair in Population Policy

Anne Plebley with John Warren

AS A SOCIOLOGIST AND A DEMOGRAPHER interested in public health, Anne Pebley favors an interdisciplinary approach to research. But she often finds it difficult to combine all these areas in her studies. As the Bixby Chair in the School of Public Health, Pebley now has the flexibility to combine disciplines, a move she hopes will yield important findings on population and quality-of-life issues.

Pebley, who came to UCLA in 1999 from the Rand Corp., focuses her work on such issues as children’s health and well-being, fertility and contraception. She has looked at population and quality-of-life issues in places as close as Los Angeles and as far away as Bangladesh. One of her largest projects, for example, focuses on how families, neighborhoods and social programs work together to improve quality of life for children and teens.

“With this endowment, I’ve been able to do interdisciplinary research I couldn’t have done otherwise,” notes Pebley.
