My research addresses questions that lie at the intersection of social stratification, and the demography of health and aging. In particular my research investigates health as both a cause and a consequence of the stratification process with particular interests in the processes that produce health disparities over the life course. I am currently working on a number of projects in this area. One project explores the relative contribution of early life versus adult factors in determining of trajectories of aging and disability. Another project seeks to understand the mechanisms linking adolescent health to educational outcomes and the transition to the labor market. A third project examines the influence of childhood health in determining differences in labor market outcomes (earnings profiles, employment interruptions, asset accumulation) over the work career.
