Research Focus: My research focuses on the social epidemiology of aging from a global perspective. I primarily use data from internationally harmonized longitudinal studies of aging, including older populations of England, Canada, the United States, and South Africa. I am currently planning new projects to investigate social and economic influences on cognitive aging in low-income and low-literacy settings, and the population health implications of improving cancer survival rates at older ages. The goal of my research is to inform policy solutions to improve cognitive health and health equity among low-income older populations.
