Bio

I am an associate professor at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing where I have worked for over a decade. During this time, I gained advanced training in gerontology, disability, health disparities, and health policy. I have conducted multiple studies on aging and disability; specifically on how age and function combine to effect biological, functional and social outcomes. The contribution of various cultural factors to health disparity outcomes for people with disabilities is also a major research interest. I have expertise in qualitative and mixed-methods research, as well as policy analysis. I have served as a Health & Aging Policy Fellow for the Administration on Aging and The Office on Disability in Washington, DC. I am dedicated to using my knowledge base to structure and guide student learning experiences that yield substantial and discernible student progress.
