I am a Sociologist and Demographer studying childbearing and family relationships in the U.S.  Currently, I am an associate professor in the Sociology Department at the University of South Carolina.

My research Hartnett_Caroline_2.jpgis focused on two main areas.  First, I study decision-making around childbearing, including attitudes towards children, parity desires, and unintended pregnancy.  Second, I study the exchange of resource within families, including financial transfers to young adults, caregiving support to older adults, and qualities of intergenerational relationships.

Prior to coming to USC, I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan.
