I have worked with dozens of researchers and graduate students. I am currently working on projects on active life expectancy and life course health with three leading researchers in these areas.
Jim Laditka is on the faculty at UNC Charlotte.
He studies aging and public health.
Carol Jagger, PhD, is the AXA Professor of Epidemiology of Ageing, Newcastle University. Dr. Jagger is one of the leading researchers on health expectancies in the world, including both methodological and substantive research, and on the measurement of disability including interval need. Dr. Jagger is on the Steering Committee of Réseau Espérance de Vie en Santé (REVES), the international network on health expectancies and the disablement process that brings together epidemiologists, biostatisticians, demographers, and social science researchers.
Cheryl Elman, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Akron and Scholar in Residence at Duke University. Dr. Elman is an expert on the sociology of the life course. She was the PI on a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, “The Determinants and Consequences of Adult Education,” which examined adult education and wage attainment in the context of restructuring U.S. labor markets. Dr. Elman was also U.S. investigator in a European Research Council funded cross-national project, “eduLIFE: Lifelong Learning and Consequences for Educational Trajectories of Adults and Labor Market Returns.”
