Fred H. Bixby Chair in Population Policy
|Anne Plebley with John Warren
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.
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.
this endowment, I’ve been able to do interdisciplinary research
I couldn’t have done otherwise,” notes Pebley.
