Research Fellow, Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research.

Postdoctoral Mentor: Jacqui E. Smith

Ph.D., University of Chicago

Dr. Lee's research examines how and why context matters for health over the life course. She is interested in assessing cumulative health risk beginning in early childhood context and continuing with acquisitions of resources in adulthood. Using social sequence analysis, her current work investigates the pathways linking childhood family and school context to later-life health and how later-life health reflects variability in life opportunities in adulthood.
