Dr Chen, Yu Chih 陳昱志
Yu-Chih Chen’s research focuses on social determinants of healthy aging, with an emphasis on how economic and social/productive behavioral factors shape well-being and physical, mental, and cognitive health in later life. Guided by the life course perspective and cumulative model, Dr. Chen examines how these determinants contribute to inequality and disparity of health across a life course. Methodologically, he uses quantitative and cross-national/cultural comparative approach to examine the connections between social determinants, health, and life course, with a current project focusing on how longitudinal trajectory and patterns of activity vary by China, Korea, and US. Dr. Chen is an Assistant Professor in Social Work and Social Administration at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Prior to joining HKU, he earned his PhD from Washington University in St. Louis and MSW/BSW from National Taiwan University.
