Dr. Burgard’s research focuses on the way systems of stratification and inequality impact the health of people and populations. She currently has two main projects; the first focuses on (1) socioeconomic, gender, and racial/ethnic and immigrant status-based disparities in working lives and the relationships between working careers and health. In this work, Dr. Burgard has researched the health consequences of involuntary job loss, perceived job insecurity, and nonstandard employment contracts in the United States. She is a primary investigator on a new survey study of 1,000 adults in Southeast Michigan that entered the field in fall 2009, and will assess experiences and consequences of the current serious recession and their links with economic well-being and health. A second area of research examines the consequences of social stratification and inequality for maternal and child health and adolescent outcomes across many countries, with a particular focus on South Africa and China.
