Quincy Thomas Stewart
Professor Quincy Thomas Stewart completed his undergraduate training in Interdisciplinary Studies at Norfolk State University (1996). He received his Ph.D. in Demography and Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001. His research interests pertain to demography, social inequality, and methodology. Specifically, he is interested in the social processes that create inequalities in socioeconomic status, health and mortality. He is currently working on several theoretical papers that critically examine the methods social scientists use to examine group difference. Additionally, he is working on several empirical projects that pertain to relative deprivation, race, socioeconomic status and health outcomes in the U.S. and Sub-Saharan Africa. This work focuses on the conceptualization and measurement of inequality, the empirical validity of theories about social inequality, and the indirect estimation of mortality.
