Primary Mission within the Department

The demographic shift of the U.S. population over the next few decades has many implications for how best to care for and treat disability and disease among the aged.  In addition, despite national policy goals of reducing disparities in health for ethnic minorities, differences in health outcomes and access to necessary health services persist.  Studies based on U.S. data as well as comparative international studies inform our understanding of individual and population aging processes.  My primary research objective is to collaborate with colleagues both in and out of our department in order to address these important research questions.    

Research Interests

I am interested in population aging and international health, particularly in the areas of comparative aging,health disparities, and immigrant health. More substantively, I am interested in studying disparities in health outcomes between Latinos, blacks and whites in the U.S.; comparative, cross-country analyses of health care systems; and examining the effectiveness of health care delivery.
