Sociology, Demography
Curriculum Vitae

Jared's interests are focused at the intersection of family sociology and population health with a special focus on the mental health of young people growing up in diverse family contexts. As a postdoctoral scholar at the Carolina Population Center he collaborates with an interdisciplinary team to push social science under the skin by exploring the biosocial processes that translate our social experiences within families to biological outcomes across the life course. At his core, Jared seeks to study young people and their families in ways that inform the translation of research into policy intervention.
