I am a quantitative sociologist specializing in aging, families, and health. I have a particular focus on the ramifications of intergenerational, marital, and social relationships for adults’ well-being in mid- and later-life. This includes analysis of parent-child relationships following bereavement, dyadic associations between husbands’ and wives’ perceptions of marital quality and mental health in later life, and effects of neighborhood age composition on adults' well-being.
