Summary of the investigation:

My research focuses on understanding the dynamics of early life experiences and their impact of health trajectories within the context of the family and local environment. The questions I am tackling is: 1) how family environment can mitigate or attenuate the impact of early life experiences, and 2) whether the effect of childhood exposures on late-life health is due partner selection patterns.

As a research assistant, I assist the project with preparation of conventional longitudinal datasets and less conventional data in addition to supporting with literature search and analysis.
