Please welcome the newest addition to the SBS family, Dr. Stacy Torres.
Stacy Torres is an ethnographer who specializes in aging and the life course, gender, family, health/ mental health, and urban sociology. She is currently developing two new research projects. The first project, a qualitative in-depth interview study of 75 elders, expands her research on aging in place with a special focus on minority and immigrant aging in upstate New York. The second long-term ethnographic project will examine urban belonging among people diagnosed with serious mental illness in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Stacy published an op-ed on 8/20/18 with one of her doctoral students in The New York Times about family immigration policy and the caretaking contributions of immigrant grandparents: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/20/opinion/family-immigration-grandparents.html
