Economics

Research: Dr. Schmitz's research bridges theory and methods in economics, sociology, and genetic epidemiology to explore ways in which biological predispositions interact with economic and social environments to promote or impede health and social mobility across the lifespan. Her current research examines how economic disadvantage and related social stressors combine with genotype to affect health disparities at older ages; how genetic propensities and educational environment in childhood affect schooling and lifetime earnings; and how occupational characteristics, health, and the decision to retire are associated.

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.
