My combined research and teaching agenda reflects a commitment to the biopsychosocial aspects of aging, stress & adaptation, housing, and relocation decision-making. I frame my teaching and research primarily from an interdisciplinary perspective largely built upon social psychology experimental paradigms. The majority of my scholarly work is on aging and environment, particularly aging-in-place and relocation decision-making, stress, and adaptation among older adults using a mixed methods research designs. I have analyzed data with basic univariate statistics, advanced multivariate statistics, and case study approaches.
