Dr. Chioun Lee is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Riverside. Her expertise as a quantitative life-course sociologist focuses on the intricate interplay between gender/sex, race/ethnicity, family dynamics, aging, health, and overall well-being. In her ongoing research, she builds upon her established body of work, with a specific focus on investigating disparities in multimorbidity and later-life health through an intersectional perspective. She is dedicated to exploring modifiable life-course factors that have the potential to mitigate disparities among marginalized and privileged older adults.
