Michael R. Corey
Doctoral Candidate
AHRQ Doctoral Fellow
Department of Sociology
University of Chicago

I am a quantitative sociologist and social demographer. My specialty areas are the analysis of daily activities, health behaviors, and attitudes. My work is at the intersection of individual action, social expectations, and group level processes. My research has appeared in Demography, is under submission at Social Indicators Research, and has won awards at international conferences. I utilize a broad array of statistical procedures in my work, including regression models, cluster analysis, and sequence analytic techniques. My daily work gets programmed in R and Stata, I teach using SPSS, and I am known to implement Python, Java, LaTeX, blogging platforms, and other methods to complete and distribute my research. My talent is at the border of social demography and data science. You may download my resume for more information.

While at Chicago I have worked with the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy, NORC at the University of Chicago, and for various departments in the university. I have been an associate editor on the American Journal of Sociology, including running the manuscript assignment board. I regularly teach statistics at DePaul.

I am interested in mapping the interactions of individuals with each other and technology across the day, week, and year. Please contact me if you’d like to talk about collaborating in those areas.
