Megan Doherty Bea

Ph.D. Candidate


My research interests are in economic sociology, sociology of finance, social stratification, and financial policy. I study both macro-level processes that shape financial inequalities and micro-level economic and financial outcomes of individuals. I take a variety of methodological approaches in my work, including archival research and spatial and quantitative analysis.
