University of Texas at Austin
I am a medical sociologist and social demographer studying health inequalities and family dynamics over the life course. Currently I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Population Research Center 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, Journals of Gerontology: Social Sciences, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Demographic Research, Research on Aging, Chinese Sociological Review, Aging & Mental Health, and other peer-reviewed outlets (Google Scholar).
