Research Statement

Primary interests in gerontology, including well-being, quality of life, mental and physical health, race/ethnic/immigrant diversity and elder mistreatment. Focus is on family interaction (including domestic violence) and formal aging service utilization. Social interaction and participation in aging services has been examined in depth, with the aim to encourage optimal practices and prevent elder mistreatment. Recent emphasis on domestic violence among dyads has included a project examining intimate partner homicide-suicide in 3 age categories, young adult 18-44, middle aged 45-59 and elderly 60+.  Lethality in current or former partnerships show distinct patterns by age and sex.  There are implications for policy and prevention as the baby boom cohort moves into advanced ages through mid and later life.
