Anna Rybińska is a postdoctoral research scientist for Family Connects International and the Prospective Study of Infant Development. She joined the Center for Child and Family Policy in August 2019. Her research interests focus broadly on the variation in family formation patterns across time, space, and social groups and the implications of family formation patterns on the well-being of mothers and their children.
