Position title: Associate Professor, Sociology

Michal Engelman, PhD MHS is the Director of the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study and the Director of Training for the Center for Demography of Health and Aging. She studies the dynamics of population aging and health across the life course, with particular emphasis on early and mid-life factors that influence health disparities at older ages. Her research agenda links individual health patterns with aggregate demographic trends within three lines of inquiry: (1) health and inequality across the life course; (2) global aging, migration, and health; and (3) the formal demography of longevity.
