Areas of Research Interest: The life-course origins of health and socioeconomic inequality. His work examines (1) the effect of economic opportunities – and the policies that influence them – on health behaviors and outcomes, (2) the effects of early life interventions on adult health and well-being, and the mechanisms underlying these links; and (3) the role of social policies and structural factors in shaping population health
The Center for Financial Security Retirement and Disability Research Center wrapped up our first year as a center in the consortium. We are releasing research briefs and working papers of the nine research projects funded in FY2019.
e University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Financial Security Retirement and Disability Research Center (CFS RDRC) is an applied research program which develops evidence that can assist policymakers, the public, and the media in understanding issues in Social Security, retirement, and disability policy, especially related to economically vulnerable populations. The CFS RDRC incorporates diversity of viewpoints and disciplines, develops diverse emerging scholars and generates research findings that are used in policy and practice. To this end, CFS has released a call for applications for the JSIT 2020 Summer Workshop and the IRP Extramural Small Grant.

JSIT 2020 call for applications due February 14, 2020, 11:59 pm PST
About the Workshop: Howard University’s Center on Race and Wealth (CRW) and the Center for Financial Security (CFS) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison seek applications for the Junior Scholar Intensive Training (JSIT) Summer Workshop. This week-long workshop, held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will bring together PhD students, newly graduated PhD researchers, and junior faculty who are interested in topics related to disability and retirement research in the United States. The goal of JSIT is to provide emerging scholars with training to develop research ideas and with mentoring to write an initial research proposal. The research proposals that scholars develop through JSIT may be eligible for small grants or other support. JSIT is supported by the Social Security Administration Retirement and Disability Research Consortium. For more information, visit the JSIT landing page.
