About the Author

Since 1997, Mark Edwards (Ph.D., University of Washington) has taught stratification, research methods and writing, and social statistics in the Sociology Department at Oregon State University. His recent research on food insecurity has been used by nonprofit groups, state agencies, and the media addressing domestic hunger in the Northwest. Many of his research papers have appeared in social science journals such as Social Forces, Rural Sociology, and Social Science Quarterly. But a favorite part of his work is helping students improve their social science writing.
