NICHD Postdoctoral Fellow
Rhiannon Kroeger



Rhiannon Kroeger is a postdoctoral fellow at the Population Research Center, funded by an F32 NICHD Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (Grant No. F32 HD072616). Her overarching research interests consider the ways in which intimate relationships and health influence each other over the life course across different racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, and gendered contexts. Her current research focuses in part on the implications of both parent socioeconomic status in adolescence and respondent socioeconomic status in young adulthood for health outcomes following entry into marriage and/or cohabitation. Further, Dr. Kroeger is interested in whether health conditions experienced early in the life course (e.g. ADHD) are associated with the formation and stability of cohabiting and marital relationships in young adulthood. In addition, her recent work has considered differences in relationship dynamics and health outcomes across relationship types among men and women in same- and different-sex relationships.
