websiteMy name is Jamie Budnick, and I am a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

I earned my BA with honors in 2009 from the University of Michigan (with concentrations in sociology, women’s studies, and English).  For the next two years, I worked on two exciting projects at Michigan: the Relationship Dynamics & Social Life (RDSL) study at Michigan’s Population Studies Center, and the Integrated Fertility Survey Series (IFSS) under Michigan’s Inter-university Consortium for Political & Social Research (ICPSR). I completed my MA in sociology in 2013 and am working on the candidacy requirements for my doctoral degree, including a graduate certificate in LGBTQ studies.

I will continually update this site as my work develops.
