Research Overview

  • My research focuses on addressing issues related to successful aging, and I have a specific interest in health disparities. My undergraduate and doctoral training sparked my interests in several aspects of aging, including: racial/ethnic disparities in health, family caregiving, social support, health care access and utilization, cognition, and mobility.

    My research objectives within the field of health disparities include examining racial disparities on numerous outcomes including, but not limited to:

    physical and mental health in older adults and
    exploring racial differences in caregiver resilience in response to the stressors associated with caregiving.

    Disparities have previously been identified in these areas, but the focus of my research is on (a) charting the longitudinal trajectories of these outcomes, (b) identifying factors such as social support, healthcare utilization, and perceived discrimination that may explain or mediate racial differences, and (c) developing targeted interventions to reduce disparities.
