Rebecca Anna Schut

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the NIA T32 Specialized Training Program in the Demography and Economics of Aging at The University of Chicago's Center for Health and the Social Sciences.

My research uses quantitative methods to investigate how racism and nativism generate population health inequalities and stratified life outcomes for people of color and immigrants in the United States. A key focus of my scholarship is on understanding U.S. health care as a racialized institution, within which broader social inequalities are reflected and reproduced for both patients and physicians. My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Demography, Social Science & Medicine, Sociology of Health and Illness, International Migration Review, Demographic Research, and Population Research and Policy Review.

I am currently developing several projects that examine how structures of racial stratification and immigrant exclusion intersect to generate healthcare and health inequalities among immigrants of various racial-ethnic identities and legal statuses.

I hold a Ph.D. in Demography and Sociology (2022), an M.A. in Demography (2019), and a B.A. in Health and Societies (2016) from the University of Pennsylvania.
