Laura Duberstein Lindberg joined AGI in February 2004 as a Senior Research Associate. She has published extensively on adolescent sexual behavior, contraceptive use and risk behaviors. From 2001 to 2003, Dr. Lindberg worked at Abt Associates in Bethesda, MD, and from 1995 to 2001 she was at the Urban Institute's Population Studies Center in Washington, DC. Laura was one of the key researchers on the 1995 National Survey of Adolescent Males, the content of which has been largely absorbed into the newest round of the National Survey of Family Growth. Dr. Lindberg received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan's Sociology Department, having specialized in demography.
