Dr. Rosales' research explores the nature of linked lives, their context, and consequences for individuals and families over time. A broad focus is on how multigenerational socioeconomic and psychosocial factors shape well-being and socioeconomic attainment over the life course. A current focus is on the relationship between inter- and intragenerational characteristics and the timing and sequencing of role attainment in the transition from adolescence to adulthood (e.g., education, employment, partnering, parenthood). Additionally, new research extends previous work on health behavior consequences of exposure to adverse childhood experience by examining critical periods of exposure (i.e., timing, duration, cumulation) as an explanatory factor in the social patterning of well-being and role attainment.
