Interests: Health and Well-Being, Social Demography, Sociology of Family, Aging and the Life Course, Race and Ethnic Relations, and Quantitative Research Methods.

Projects: My research is centered on the topics of health and well-being, family behaviors, and race/ethnicity to better understand how social relations create and shape health inequalities. More specifically, I am currently working on several projects about: 1) the impacts of transitions to adulthood on health and well-being; 2) race and ethnic variations in family behaviors and their associations to health outcomes; and 3) changes in individual health and well-being consequences by social factors over the life course.
