Dr. Hargrove's Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Taylor Hargrove earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2011, and a PhD in Sociology at Vanderbilt University in 2016. She returned to UNC-CH as a Postdoctoral Fellow through the Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity and the Carolina Population Center. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology.

Dr. Hargrove's primary research areas of interest are race, aging and the life course, and the social stratification of health. Her work seeks to address ongoing questions related to the measurement, mechanisms, and development of health inequalities at the intersections of race, skin color, gender, and socioeconomic status. During her time at UNC, Dr. Hargrove has broadened her research agenda by integrating biomedical approaches into the study of racial/ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic inequality. She plans to continue this line of research in efforts to help elucidate the pathways through which social factors "get under our skin" to shape health and undergird social stratification.

Primary Research Areas:

  • Population Health
