I am a social gerontologist with multidisciplinary training in sociology, aging, psychology, communication, public health, and human development and family studies, and have a strong track record in research, teaching, and mentorship. Broadly, my research program examines the contexts of caregiving and chronic disease during middle and late adulthood. Within these contexts, I am interested in: (1) the work-family interface, (2) long-term care settings, (3) family processes, (4) health-related quality of life and behavior, and (5) health communication and decision making.
