Professor Emeritus, Sociology.
Ph.D., Sociology, Princeton University
Dr. Knodel has conducted research in the areas of social demography in developing countries (specializing in Southeast Asia and particularly Thailand) and European historical demography. During the last two decades his studies focused mainly on issues related to the older aged population including the AIDS epidemic impact on older persons, how migration of adult children affects older age parents, and broad assessments of the situation of older persons. His current research focuses on Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam and involves country-specific and comparative studies of the status of and support systems for the elderly. His research uses both quantitative and qualitative methods, and virtually all of it is conducted in collaboration with colleagues in the region.
