Patrick Krueger is an Assistant Professor in the Health and Behavioral Department at the University of Colorado at Denver. Patrick's research is on the social determinants of health, health behaviors, and mortality. His recent projects examine how socioeconomic status and family dynamics shape the practice of health behaviors including smoking, drinking, exercise, and sleep duration. He also examines whether the consequences for those behaviors for mortality vary across social groups. And, he typically relies on the rigorous application of quantitative methods in his research.
