Dr. Short’s research examines changing social and demographic environments and their implications for family dynamics, gender, health, and well-being.
She has examined economic reform and population policy in China, the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Lesotho, and changes in the organization of women’s work and parenting in the U.S. Short’s research is characterized by diverse methodologies, including demographic, ethnographic, spatial, and genomic approaches. Her recent work integrates social and biological perspectives to investigate the processes through which social experiences are embodied over the life course, producing variation in health and well-being.
