Sara Ronnkvist awarded IPUMS Global Health Student Research Award

Congratulations to CDE graduate student Sara Ronnkvist, who was awarded the 2024 IPUMS Global Health Student Research Award alongside Brian Thiede and Emma Barber. Their paper “Child fostering in a changing climate: evidence from sub-Saharan Africa” published in Population and the Environment in November 2023 explored the implications of climate variability for the movement of children in sub-Saharan Africa via exploring the relationship between climate exposure and in- and out-fostering children (utilizing IPUMS data). Congratulations, again, Sara!
