I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at Duke University. My research interests include mental health, life course, medical sociology, inequality, demography and quantitative methodology. I am particularly interested in how early life events and stressors shape life course mental health outcomes and whether any long-term impacts are shaped by the duration, timing, and severity of these events. Through this work, I also explore questions around the measurement of cumulative stressors. My work on the long-term impacts of early life has been published in Society and Mental Health and Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
