Research Overview

I am a Professor of Medicine in the Center on Aging at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. I conduct evidence-based health services research and intervention studies focused on aging families; long term services, supports and policy; dementia and health disparities using quantitative and qualitative research methods. I completed my Ph.D. at Cornell University and a post-doctoral fellowship in the epidemiology of aging at the Yale School of Medicine. My work has been funded since 1997 by a range of sources including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Administration on Community Living, Connecticut State Agencies and the State Legislature, medical research foundations, and the National Institutes of Health. The results of my work directly impact the implementation of policies and programs that serve extremely vulnerable populations in Connecticut and nationally. I have served as Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator on over 50 funded research studies and regularly present research findings in national and community forums. I have published over 55 scientific articles and book chapters as well as over 70 legislative and policy reports.
