" I attempt to understand why some people live long and healthy lives whereas other people die prematurely from causes that could have been prevented "



Tetyana Pudrovska is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and a faculty research associate in the Population Research Center at UT-Austin. Her overarching research area is biopsychosocial demography of health and aging. She takes a life-course intersectionality approach to explore how the interplay of socioeconomic status, gender, and race/ethnicity shapes physical health, mental health, and mortality from early life to old age. She analyzes life-course processes that convey the effect of early-life exposures on late-life health, including socioeconomic attainment, family trajectories, social relationships, health behaviors, and physiological mechanisms (in particular, inflammation and glucoregulation).
