Associate Professor in the Department of Health and Behavioral Sciences, University of Colorado Denver

A sociologist and demographer by training, Dr. Yeatman’s research centers on three areas: the social consequences of HIV/AIDS, fertility preference dynamics, and the creative measurement of sensitive information.

Recently, Yeatman helped design and run a three-year panel study (2009-2012) of 3,000 young men, women and couples in southern Malawi (Tsogolo la Thanzi, http://sites.psu.edu/tltc/), which examined how young adults navigated marriage and childbearing in a generalized AIDS epidemic.

Dr. Yeatman earned a PhD in Sociology (with a demography specialization) from the University of Texas at Austin and a MSc in Demography and Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
