Jeremy Freese is interested broadly in the relationship between social differences and individual differences, and between social advantage and embodied advantage. This includes work differences in physical health, cognitive functioning, health behaviors, and the role of differential utilization of knowledge and innovations toward producing differences. He is co-leader of the Health Disparities Working Group for the Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences. Freese is co-author of a book on discrete-choice-type models, which is now in its third edition and is used in many graduate classes in the social sciences. For this book, Freese is also co-author of a widely-used suite of add-on commands to the software package Stata that facilitates the interpretation of model results. He teaches statistics and data analysis to graduate students at Stanford University. Freese was previously the Ethel and John Lindgren Professor of Sociology at Northwestern University, and received his Ph.D. from Indiana University.
