Research

Robert G. White received his Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2009. His current research concerns the relationship between health, schooling and adult socioeconomic attainment and the consequences for social inequalities. He uses data from the United States and England in a series of studies assessing the lasting effects of child health for educational achievement and adult earnings. His work links approaches for studying individual attainment to population level phenomena to characterize changes over time in social inequalities.
