Hui ZhengHui Zheng is a demographer, social epidemiologist, and quantitative social scientist. His research focuses on understanding the causes, heterogeneity, inequality, and trends of population health and aging. It encompasses two interconnected areas: social and policy determinants of health, and population process of aging and mortality. He has investigated health consequences of various social structures, institutions, and policies; the trends of socioeconomic and demographic disparities in health; trend and heterogeneity in aging, mortality, and life span; the impact of life course dynamics of obesity and mortality; and the role of selection in health production and aging process. Methodologically, he is interested in developing and evaluating statistical and demographic methods to investigate the interplay of social-epidemiological changes, population dynamics and population heterogeneity on the trends of disparities in health, mortality and life expectancy. Current projects investigate the rising health challenges in the U.S.; determinants and consequences of cognitive aging across the life course, nativity disparities in labor market, aging, and health. https://www.huizhenghome.com/
