Boróka Bó

Sociologist & Demographer studying inequality & the social experience of time

She examines when, how and why time scarcity emerges — along with the ways in which it is shaped by social network, neighborhood and sociodemographic characteristics — in order to delineate the mechanisms linking sociotemporal disparities and inequalities in well-being. She specialized in incorporating a mixed methods approach, combining multiple qualitative methods (ethnography, in-depth and life story interviews) with demographic methods (surveys and statistical estimation techniques). Her work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, United States Agency for International Development, UC Berkeley's Canadian Studies Program, and by the Soros Fellowship for New Americans. She has also conducted research on: time as a resource in public schools in the United States, gender inequality and the pace of life around the world, conceptualizing socioeconomic rights in South Africa, and intergenerational exchanges of money and time in developing Europe.
