University of Texas at Austin
I am a social demographer and medical sociologist studying family dynamics and health inequalities over the life course. Currently I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Population Research Center and Center on Aging and Population Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Maryland, College Park.
One line of my research consists of social determinants of well-being, mostly among older adults. The other strand of my research investigates the changing patterns of intimate relationships in non-Western social contexts undergoing dramatic social transitions.
My work has appeared in Demography, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Demographic Research, Ageing & Society, Chinese Sociological Review, Aging & Mental Health, and other peer-reviewed outlets (Google Scholar).
