"My research agenda is broadly motivated by an interest in how individuals experience competing social roles and expectations, and the consequences for health and well-being. My work brings attention to how life course context and selection processes modify the experience of being embedded in competing social structures (such as being a worker and caregiver, or being a professional authority and employee). I use both quantitative and qualitative methods to document the impact of these experiences on psychosocial stress, physical health, and career outcomes. I pay particular attention to the context in which people enact multiple social roles– how does multiple role engagement differ by organizational setting, gender, or life course stage? Thus, I bring a life course perspective to the intersection of medical sociology and the sociology of work and family. For more information please visit http://www.katherineylin.com
