Born: 1964

Interests: aging, medical sociology, gerontology, survey design, statistics, long term care, demography

I am interested in the social-based processes by which older adults' health deteriorates: work, work conditions, health behaviors, family stressors, etc.

Also, I provide statistical and computing research support to multiple research projects that deal with the health care of the elderly.
