My research largely focuses on the measurement and analysis of comorbidity, and the differential risk for adverse events based on patterning of these conditions, with a particular focus on cardiometabolic diseases and obesity. This work is being conducted in a number of unique populations including: women across the midlife and late-life utilizing data from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation and the Michigan Bone Health and Metabolism Study as part of the Center for Midlife Science; individuals with acute respiratory infections including influenza and Covid-19 as part of the Michigan Center for Respiratory Virus Research and Response; and those with cerebral palsy and other musculoskeletal disorders as part of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation research group at Michigan Medicine.
