Sociology and Demography

Research: Dr. Smith-Greenaway’s research broadly examines how social institutions influence individuals’ wellbeing across the life-course. In her research on education, she has used both primary and secondary data to demonstrate that literacy powerfully influences both adults’ own health and that of their children. In her research on marriage, she explores how family processes intersect with the broader cultural context to influence adults’ and children’s wellbeing.
