Research Interests

I view aging from a life course perspective and as situated within the broader social context. I am particularly interested in how diverse identities influence life experiences, especially those related to the intersection of work and family, in addition to the end of life. I am also interested in how people from diverse backgrounds cope with major life events at midlife and beyond and the social and psychological sequela of such events.
