About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Michigan, with research interests in the health and social lives of older adults. My work so far has focused on the social support and social participation of older adults, and their implications for mental and physical health outcomes. Findings from these studies have been published in academic journals such as Social Science and Medicine, Demography, American Journal of Epidemiology, and Journals of Gerontology Series B: Psychological and Social Sciences, amongst others. I am actively seeking opportunities to engage in collaborative research projects.
