Meet Professor Ben Kail, who joined the GSU Sociology Department faculty in 2012.  He is also an Affiliate Faculty Member of the Gerontology Institute.

According to his departmental profile, Dr. Kail’s research falls within two areas: one “focuses on the relationships between public and private benefits, work, unpaid work, and health throughout the life course,” while the other “explores state experimentation with welfare policies and the subsequent impact of these policies on the expansion of benefits.”  His teaching interests include “aging and the life course, welfare state/social policy, work, health, research methods, and statistics.”
