Elizangela Storelli received her MA in Sociology from American University with an emphasis on global sociology and her Ph.D. in Sociology from Boston College with emphases in aging and family studies. Her dissertation focused on family support and well-being of older adults in Latin America. More broadly, her research focuses on the interplay of social support, family support and well-being among individuals and families in a global context. Her current research is on the relationships between national welfare policies and individual family-to-work conflict among adults in Europe with care responsibilities for the young or the old.
Dr. Storelli teaches undergraduate courses in introductory sociology, globalization, marriage and family, aging, research methods and statistics.
