Dr. Brown’s program of research utilizes life course perspectives and methods to investigate how ascriptive characteristics such as race/ethnicity and gender affect health and wealth. This research interest takes shape in three distinct research projects. The first project examines how race/ethnicity and the intersection of race/ethnicity with immigration and gender impact health trajectories. The second project uses multiple longitudinal data sets to investigate how dynamic processes of wealth accumulation vary by race/ethnicity, resulting in increasing wealth inequality across the life course. The final project extends his research on racial/ethnic and gender inequality by considering group differences in the effects of social and economic factors on health and wealth trajectories.
