Anna Muraveva, PhD

Associate Researcher

Anna Muraveva is a health services researcher at WiSOR with a background in Sociology and training in quantitative and qualitative research methods. She graduated from the Ph.D. program in Sociology at The Ohio State University in 2019, where she studied family formation, fertility, and population health. Anna’s dissertation research sought to shed light on the meaning of contemporary cohabitation by investigating childbearing plans and outcomes within the context of this co-residential relationship. Before joining WiSOR, she also served as a research associate on a mixed-methods study of how women with elevated risk for breast cancer make prevention decisions and manage their risk. Although Anna worked on different projects, her research focus has always been to understand people’s decision-making processes, motivations behind their decisions, and influence of life circumstances on their decision-making and subsequent behavior. Currently, she is working with Dr. Luke Funk’s research team, providing research support and project management assistance for VA and NIH studies involving obesity treatment and bariatric surgery.
