Yiwen Wang


Yiwen Wang is a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology and Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research primarily focuses on social disadvantages and health disparities across the life course, with an emphasis on health implications of family dynamics in childhood as well as intimate relationship dynamics in adulthood. Her current research explores how structural-level policy changes (e.g., same-sex marriage legalization) and individual-level relationship transitions shape the health of same-sex couples over time. She is also working on a collaborative project aimed at investigating gendered marital dynamics and health outcomes among gay, lesbian, and heterosexual married couples.
