Dr. Burgard's research interests focus on the way systems of stratification and inequality impact the health of people and populations. She currently studies racial/ethnic and gender-based disparities in working conditions and occupational careers, the effect of these inequalities on health, and the impact of an individual's working life on the well-being of other family members. She also examines racial/ethnic and socioeconomic determinants of children's health in South Africa and Brazil.
