Alla Konnikov, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta in the Department of Sociology, is interested in the nexus of immigrants’ skill transferability in professional markets and women’s careers in male-dominated fields. “I pursue a methodologically diverse research program that combines quantitative and qualitative methods,” explained Alla. “The [CAnD3] program’s agenda strongly overlaps with my research interests. I am eager to learn about the life-course oriented perspectives and hone my methodological skills.”

Alla is excited about the upcoming CAnD3 Fellowship as the program’s agenda strongly overlaps with her research interests. She is eager to learn more about the life-course oriented perspective and hone her methodological skills.

Wednesday, September 7th marked the start of the third year of the Population Analytics in an Aging Society Training Program. The 20 accomplished Fellows, selected to participate in the Consortium on Analytics for Data-Driven Decision-Making’s (CAnD3) 2022-23 training year, will convene virtually from 15 different institutions from across Canada and the United States.

The topic for the kick-off event on the seventh was ‘The Many Faces of Population Aging’, a theme that emphasizes the interdisciplinary and intersectional exchange needed to address a momentous demographic shift. It is a poignant beginning to the year-long curriculum that will combine substantive knowledge and statistical training with population analytics.
