Current Projects with Burgard:
Professor Burgard serves as co-chair of Minyoung's dissertation committee.
Minyoung’s research interests lie in an intersection among disability, gender, and aging. Minyoung has a particular interest in how informal caregiving systems, such as family members, are organized as reciprocal or conflicting relations, how men and women experience caregiving for a family member with chronic disease or disabilities differently, and how mutual interactions between caregivers and care recipients affect caregiving experiences.
