Andrew Penner


Welcome to my webpage! I am currently a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine, where I direct the Center for Administrative Data Analysis. I am also the Director of Undergraduate Studies and the Undergraduate Honors Program in the Department of Sociology, and a faculty affiliate of the Master of Public Policy program, the Center for Population, Inequality, and Policy, and the Center for Organizational Research.

In my free time I enjoy searching for culinary adventures, playing mahjong and other games, and pretending I'm a suburban farmer. If you are interested in learning more about "What matters to me and why?" you might enjoy this talk. Feel free to drop me a line at andrew.penner[at]
