Dr. Needham's research focuses on health disparities, biosocial interactions, and aging and the life course. She is particularly interested in identifying the social structural, psychological, behavioral, and physiological mechanisms by which social disadvantage leads to health disparities. Her work is guided by the sociological theory of the stress process, which posits that members of socially disadvantaged groups have worse mental and physical health than those with higher social status due to greater exposure and vulnerability to stress.
