Rhiannon A. Kroeger

Biography

Dr. Rhiannon A. Kroeger joined the department in Fall 2015, after completing an NICHD postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Texas at Austin in 2015 and a PhD in Sociology at The Ohio State University in 2012. My research interests combine the areas of family demography, population health, and race, class, and gender. Much of my research focuses on the ways in which romantic relationships influence health across different racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, and gendered contexts. More recently, I have also begun to examine the influence of mental and physical health during adolescence on the formation and stability of marital and cohabiting unions in young adulthood, and whether those associations vary by sociodemographic context. I employ a number of methodological approaches in my research, including event history modeling, dyadic diary data analysis, and fixed-effects (i.e. within subject) regression modeling. I am also interested in the use of multi-level modeling to simultaneously estimate within and between subject effects. My research has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals, including Journal of Marriage and Family, Population Research and Policy Review, and The Sociology Quarterly.
