Summary of Work:

I use nationally representative data to study the ways workforce experiences, educational attainment, and other measures of social standing are associated with health, particularly at midlife. My research focuses primarily on how these variables contribute to gendered health disparities and how these variables inform when health disparities emerge across the life course.
