Sociology: Sociology of aging, including global population aging, well-being and retirement, sociology of family, gender inequality, international development, Latin and America, and quantitative studies.
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 both a local and global context.
Her recent research is on the ways community interventions promote protective factors for older adult well-being. She has worked collaboratively with Fairfax County leadership to develop a county-wide asset model for older adult well-being.
