Dr. Lim joined the department in 2013 after receiving her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Lim’s research focuses on the causes, processes, and consequences of a growing inequality across individuals, families, and different social contexts with particular interests in changes in family, labor market, and health disparity.

Currently she is engaged in several research projects examining 1) the impact of recent labor market changes (e.g., deteriorating job quality and increasing nonstandard employment) on individuals and families in the U.S. and East Asia; 2) cross-national research on family changes and inequality in Europe, the U.S. and Asia; 3) family and gender inequality in Utah and Intermountain Region; and 4) determinants and mechanisms of health disparity in the U.S. and Asia. 

Dr. Lim’s research has been published in various journals such as Journal of Marriage and FamilyPopulation StudiesDemographic ResearchSocial Science Research, and Research in the Sociology of Work
