My research focuses on care planning, caregiver health, aging-in-place, and the well-being of family care dyads that include older adults with and without cognitive impairment. I am interested in the influence of social and family relationship factors on those outcomes, and I also study the potential to remotely assess and functional decline and improve care planning using technology.
