Rhiannon Kroeger

Postdoctoral Fellow Ph.D., The Ohio State University

NICHD Postdoctoral Fellow
Rhiannon Kroeger



Rhiannon Kroeger received her PhD in Sociology in 2012 from The Ohio State University and is currently 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 research blends interests in population health, family demography, and social stratification. More specifically, her research aims to understand the ways in which race, class, and gender influence: a) intimate relationships; b) physical and mental health; and c) associations between intimate relationships and health outcomes – both within the United States and Mexico. Her current projects include:  (1) an analysis of how socioeconomic status (SES) interacts with intimate union status to influence SES body weight disparities in young adulthood; and (2) an examination of whether individuals diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) report less stable intimate relationship histories in young adulthood, and the extent to which this pattern is explained by the downward socioeconomic mobility of diagnosed individuals relative to their parents.
