I study aging, health, disability, and chronic disease using a public health perspective. My goal is to help older people live longer in better health, and to improve the quality of life and well-being among older people.
My CV includes my publications. I invite you to take a look at the other links on my website to learn more about my research and other interests.

I enjoy teaching and mentoring student in research. These photos show some of the doctoral students I have mentored. I describe my work with doctoral students here. More than half of my publications include students. I have listed student first-authored peer reviewed journal articles here.
