My research examines social inequalities in health and human suffering. I am especially (not exclusively) interested in the effects of religious involvement, neighborhood context, social relationships, and socioeconomic status. To date, I have published over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries. My publications appear in a range of journals like the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Social Science & Medicine, The Journals of Gerontology, The Gerontologist, American Journal of Public Health, Labour Economics, and Social Work. I have also published chapters in the Handbook of Sociology of Aging, Annual Review of Gerontology and Geriatrics, the Handbook of the Sociology of Mental Health, and the Handbook on Religion and Society. According to Google Scholar, my published work has been cited across a range of disciplines well over 4,000 times.
