Julie completed her PhD in the Department of Sociology in 2017. Her research focuses on social and behavioral correlates of depression among elderly adults in the United States. Her dissertation focused on how paid labor and caregiving transitions, social support, and unhealthy behaviors are related to depressive symptoms in the late-life period, and addresses the need to examine social factors in relation to biological features of aging to better understand late-onset depression and experiences of depressive symptoms in late-life.
