Katrina M. Walsemann

Associate Professor, Department of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior, University of South Carolina.

Off-Campus Research Affiliate, Population Studies Center.

Ph.D., University of Michigan

Dr. Walsemann is a population scientist whose research focuses on bridging life course analysis with sociocultural perspectives on population health. An important aspect of her research is examining how early life experiences can influence health and health inequities across the life course. Her work focuses on the ways educational inequities can influence physical and mental health during adolescence and transition into adulthood. Other projects focus on how marginalization (e.g., legal status, sexual minority status) impacts health and how debt, in the form of student loans, may reduce the generally positive association between education and health.
