Research Interests

My research uses social network analysis and other quantitative methods to study health and aging. I am primarily interested in the interplay between personal networks and health in later life. Among other things, I study how older adults’ personal networks change as they undergo major life transitions. For example, in a current study I examine how the transition into informal caregiving relates to network turnover among older adults.

In my second line of research, I explore the social determinants of health and mortality for the broader population. In this research, I focus on social and physical characteristics of the places in which individuals live and how these places interact with individual characteristics to influence health-related outcomes.
