Tyrus Parker joined the Carsey School in 2024 as a Research Scientist II for the Center for Social Policy in Practice. A sociologist and demographer by trade, Tyrus was drawn to the Carsey School's dedication to making an impact in local New Hampshire communities, which he has a soft spot for from growing up in the mountains of Conway, New Hampshire. His graduate research revolved around changing fertility rates across the United States, and examining how the country is becoming diverse in different ways. He is a bit of a "UNH lifer" having received all his higher education degrees from the University.
