Dr. Cheadle received his PhD in Sociology and Demography from Pennsylvania State University. He is also co-director of the Bio-sociology of Minority Health Disparities Research Lab with his colleague, Dr. Bridget Goosby. His research focuses on how social processes intersect with biological processes to create individual variation in social functioning and health from late childhood and into adulthood. For example, they are currently studying how experiencing racial discrimination interacts with stress physiology to shape health disparities in a community sample. In the laboratory, they are interested in how peer pressure can bias adolescent and college students’ decision-making towards risky behaviors. The different projects he is involved in seeks to integrate measures at multiple levels of analysis including social networks, physiology, neurobiology, and genetics. They are also interested in social experiences and health over daily to long-term time scales, and using survey and experimental methods.
