Sara Lopus and Maggie Frye, Princeton University

Margaret Frye is an Assistant Professor in Sociology at Princeton, and an affiliate of the Office of the Population Research.

She is currently in the midst of a new fieldwork project examining university education and changing understandings of status in Uganda. She teaches courses on quantitative methods, marriage and sexuality, and the sociology of culture. She holds a PhD in Sociology and Demography from the University of California, Berkeley.

Sara Lopus is a post-doctoral research and teaching associate in the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). She teaches courses on environmental migration and contemporary African societies. Her research relates to African households and parental investments in children.
