Stefanie Deluca, James Coleman Professor of Sociology & Social Policy, Johns Hopkins University

Stefanie Deluca is a Professor of Sociology and Social Public Policy at Johns Hopkins University. Professor Deluca’s research explores the way social context (e.g. family, school, neighborhood, peers) affects the outcomes of disadvantaged young people, primarily in adolescence and at the transition to adulthood. Using interdisciplinary frameworks and multiple methodologies to examine these issues, my current research focuses on the sociology of education, urban sociology, neighborhoods and social inequality in the life course.
