Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection among stress, health, and socioeconomic status. Specifically, I am interested in analyzing the interactions among daily stress, socioeconomic status, and health in the context of economic downturn. Furthermore, I am also interested in examining the biological aspects of daily stress and its relations to health, socioeconomic status, and macro-economic condition.
