Rhiannon Kroeger is a postdoctoral fellow at the Population Research Center, funded by an F32 NICHD Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award.
Her research combines the areas of family and health, socioeconomic status and health, and race/ethnicity and health. Broadly, she is concerned with the ways in which racial and socioeconomic stratification fundamentally shape the influences of other institutions, such as the family, on health. At the PRC, she is working with Drs. Debra Umberson, Robert Hummer, Robert Crosnoe, and Kelly Raley to study 1) how social and racial stratification shape the structure and quality of intimate unions, and 2) whether any socioeconomic and racial differences in the structure and quality of intimate unions contribute to socioeconomic and racial health disparities throughout the life course.
Dr. Kroeger's current research is based upon work supported by Grant No. F32 HD072616.
