Dr. Bierman is a quantitative sociologist whose research focuses on the way that social inequality influences both exposure to stress and the consequences of stress for well-being.  He also has a strong interest in aging and the life course, and often examines the stress process among older adults.  This research typically involves applying advanced methods of longitudinal data analysis to large population surveys, thereby providing a rigorous understanding of the causes and consequences of stress exposure among older adults.
