With a background in anthropology, public policy, and medical education, I'm interested in aging from cultural, political, and clinical perspectives. In medical education, I evaluated the impact of community-based geriatric training on the attitudes of primary care physicians. My current research explores the impact of urban planning and zoning on health and quality of life for older adults "aging-in-place" in New York City.
