Dr. Brown’s research broadly examines how socioeconomic status and social relationships influence population health. His recent research has examined educational differences in older adult mortality compression, the combined influence of education and marital status on older adult mortality, the relationship between marital biography and cumulative biological risk, and health differences between individuals in same-sex and different-sex relationships. His current research investigates various ways that educational attainment and marriage provide individuals with the material and non-material resources necessary to avoid health risks and accumulate health advantages over the course of their lives.
