Social Inequality and Telomere Length in Fragile Families (PSC Initiatives)
Research Assistant Professor, Family Demography, Institute for Social Research.
Faculty Associate, Population Studies Center.
Ph.D., University of Michigan
Dr. Mitchell’s research focuses on the causes and consequences of family formation behavior. He examines how social context such as neighborhood resources and values influence family processes and how those processes interplay with an individual’s genetic and epigenetic makeup to influence behavior, wellbeing, and health. His research also includes the development of new methods for integrating the collection and analysis of biological and social data.
