Mairead Eastin Moloney
Associate Professor of Sociology

I received a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009. Subsequently, I held postdoctoral fellowships in both research (2009-2011, Program on Integrative Medicine in the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and teaching (2011-2014, Department of Sociology at North Carolina State University).

In 2014, I joined the University of Kentucky as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology. I was promoted to Associate Professor, with tenure, in 2020. I also serve as affiliate faculty for the Department of Gender and Women's Studies, the Center for Health Equity Transformation, The Appalachian Studies Program, and the Health, Society, and Populations major.
