My career has centered on epidemiologic studies in aging, with particular emphasis on the impact of pressure ulcers, dementia, long term care, and injury on older adults. In addition, given my training and expertise in epidemiologic research methods, I have had a strong and evolving focus on study design, measurement, data management, and data analysis, both as a study leader and as a collaborator on other studies.
