Isaac Sasson is a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology and graduate trainee at the Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin. A native-born Israeli, he attended the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and upon graduation moved to Texas to pursue his scholarly passion for fertility, migration, and mortality (having experienced two of the three demographic processes). Isaac holds Master’s degrees in sociology and statistics from UT-Austin and is currently completing his doctoral dissertation, studying the trends, causes, and consequences of the educational gradient in U.S. adult mortality.
Isaac enjoys working in diverse subject areas and has conducted research on fertility and natural capital in sub-Saharan Africa using satellite imagery, widowhood and depression using longitudinal data, and properties of nonlinear hierarchical models using simulation. He is a former graduate fellow of the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences and statistical consultant at the Population Research Center at UT-Austin.
