Title: Professor and Chair, Rutgers Department of Sociology
Professor Kristen W. Springer studies family dynamics and their affect on physical and mental health. She has particular expertise in three areas: 1) how childhood abuse continues to harm health long into adulthood, 2) how marital dynamics and income inequality in marriage affect health, and 3) how family structure (i.e. single mother) and family processes (i.e. parental employment) shape child health. She has written editorials and provided interviews for newspapers on broad issues related to family dynamics and health.
