Research and Teaching Interests
Dr. Walsemann's research revolves around understanding how early life experiences can influence health and health inequities (e.g., gender, racial, and class) across the life course. She is particularly interested in the ways that institutionalized discrimination can influence physical and mental health during adolescence and as individuals transition into adulthood. Other projects focus on how marginalization (e.g., legal status, sexual minority status) impacts health and how debt, in the form of student loans, may modify the generally positive association between education and health.
