Hyungmin (Min) Cha is a social demographer who takes a demographic and life-course approach to the study of health disparities. His primary research addresses how life course exposures and events influence the morbidity and mortality experiences of the population and how individual agency influences and moderates the effects of life course exposures. His investigations span the range from macro-social determinants of population health (e.g. income inequality, social cohesion), to meso-level influences (neighborhood and workplace contexts), down to the individual-level (stress, and psychosocial risk factors).
