Jaclyn Wong


Dr. Wong received her PhD in sociology with a graduate certificate in gender and sexuality studies from the University of Chicago in 2018. Dr. Wong’s research interests include gender, marriage and family, work, health, and aging and the life course. One of her projects uses longitudinal in-depth interviews and original survey data to examine how young professionals with egalitarian gender attitudes make career and family decisions with their opposite-sex romantic partners. Her other projects use nationally representative survey data to examine how positive and negative social relationships shape older adults’ health and wellbeing.
