In broad terms, Renate's research focuses on social determinants of health among potentially vulnerable populations (e.g., older adults, women who have experienced abuse, individuals who have experienced discrimination). She studies the influence of psychosocial factors, and especially particular social group identities (e.g., as a caregiver, a woman, or a person of religious faith), on coping with stressful experiences. Her research takes an interdisciplinary and community-based approach in order to contribute toward developing healthier societies for all by focusing on three interconnected themes: 1) healthy aging, 2) religious identity, and 3) coping with stress.
