Address: 300 W Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Austin, TX 78705, USA

Catherine Ruth Pakaluk is a professor of economics in the Busch School of Business and Economics at The Catholic University of America, a faculty research fellow at the Stein Center for Social Research, and fellow of the Austin Institute.  Her research is concerned broadly with the study of family, gender, and fertility.  Most recently, she has been working on theoretical frameworks for evaluating the effect of changes in contraceptive technology on sexual behavior and fertility.  She also studies the relationship between churches, schools, and families and is developing new metrics for measuring the value of a “good fit” between students and schools.  Professor Pakaluk received her doctorate in economics from Harvard University in 2010.  She lives in Maryland with her husband, Michael, and eight children.

The Austin Institute and the Salem Center are bringing you new Engaging Orthodoxy talks this fall, a speaker series founded by our own Professor Mark Regnerus.
