On Job Market

Postdoctoral Fellow, Population Studies Center.

Postdoctoral Mentor: John Bound, Arline T. Geronimus, James S. Jackson

Ph.D., University of Californa - Los Angeles

Dr. Rodriguez’s research incorporates theoretical and methodological principles from economics, demography, psychology, and public health to study the political causes and consequences of socioeconomic and racial disparities in health. He investigates how political actors and institutions, like presidents and political parties, influence health at the aggregate and individual levels, and how these health outcomes in turn determine political processes such as policy-making and electoral outcomes. An important component of his research is the assessment of the political consequences of socioeconomic-driven premature mortality, and the disentangling of the underlying causal mechanisms through which the early disappearance of the poor masks the true detrimental effects of social stratification and political inequality.
