Juyeon Kim

I received my Ph.D. degree in Sociology from the University of Chicago in 2011 and was a post doctoral fellow at the Department of Sociology and the Center on Aging at National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago. My research centers on the study of health and aging in the contexts of social networks and family. The purpose of my research is to elucidating the dynamic interrelationships among family structure, social networks, and health, and their association with social resources, psychological states and physiological functioning during the aging process. Ultimately, my goal is to enhance our understanding of how interactions between social contexts and individuals’ adaptive strategies take variant pathways, resulting in inequality.
