My research yields fresh insights into how personal well-being shapes, reflects and modifies micro-macro links. It offers an interdisciplinary approach to agency and structure and has appeared in Social Forces, Social Psychology Quarterly, Sociological Quarterly, Social Indicators Research, Stress and Health and Health Psychology Review. My work is oriented around several basic questions concerning micro-macro links: How does well-being modify returns to capital? How does well-being broaden and build into further resources, such as social capital or worker adjustment? Finally, in what ways is personal well-being stable versus dynamic?
