Adam Lippert is a sociologist and demographer whose research centers on: (1) understanding the role that contexts (e.g., schools, neighborhoods) play in shaping human health and health behaviors; (2) examining the contribution of work-family circumstances to health and 0family well-being; and (3) exploring the mechanisms linking long-term exposure to disadvantage and declining health over the life course. He completed his PhD at the Pennsylvania State University in 2013 and post-doctoral training at Harvard University through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program (2013-15). He enjoys working with students who share his interests (even remotely) and welcomes the chance to discuss student-led projects related to health, demography, and quantitative methods.
