Hui Zheng is an associate professor of sociology at The Ohio State University, affiliated with Institute for Population Research, Translational Data Analytics Institute, Criminal Justice Research Center, and East Asian Studies Center. He is a demographer, social epidemiologist, and quantitative social scientist.
His research focuses on the dynamics of population health and aging, and 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; origins and pathways of health and aging; the impact of life course dynamics of obesity on 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 and disparities of health, mortality, and life expectancy.
On-going projects investigate the trend and causes of population health and inequality in the U.S.; determinants and consequences of cognitive aging across the life course; and nativity disparities in labor market and health.
His work is supported by grants from CDC (National Center for Health Statistics) and NIH (NIA, NICHD), covered by major media outlets including Time, New York Times, The Atlantic, USA Today, Newsweek, andThe Times (UK), and granted Eliot Freidson Outstanding Publication Award Honorable Mention (2019) from ASA Medical Sociology Section.
