Carol Ryff

Carol Ryff is professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Ryff is also director of the Institute on Aging at UW-Madison. Her research addresses aging as a multidisciplinary challenge that requires integration of many levels of analysis: socio-demographic characteristics, psychosocial resources, life stresses, health behaviors and practices, neurobiological risk and protective factors, and health outcomes (mental and physical). She studies the pathways through which these influences come together in longitudinal investigations, involving local, state, and national samples. Ryff received her PhD from Pennsylvania State University.
