Hye Won Chai graduated from the Pennsylvania State University in 2020 with dual-title Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies & Demography. Her research focuses on family and social relationships of middle and older adults and their associations with physical health outcomes in later life. She is particularly interested in examining how the dynamics of social relationships and health unfold across different time scales, connecting daily interactions to long-term health outcomes. Her interest also includes studying the role of SES characteristics, educational attainment in particular, in the associations between social relationships and health. She is working with Dr. Debra Umberson on the Health Experiences After Loss: Insulating the Next Generation (HEALING) Project.
