Ingrid Arnet Connidis, Ph.D.
Professor Department of Sociology

Dr. Connidis' primary research interest is family ties and aging. Social support is a central feature of social life and family ties are an important facet of social support.

Recurring themes in her work include the centrality of gender to family life, the value of a life course perspective, the significance of context when examining any particular relationship, and the policy implications of research results.
