Research Interests: My research interests broadly center around aging and chronic conditions. I am especially interested in health disparities, social isolation, end-of-life decision making, attitudes towards palliative care, and barriers to successful aging. I am also interested in interventions to support older adults’ access to healthcare resources, such as telemedicine.
