Broadly, my research focuses on individual characteristics associated with variability in cognitive and behavioral change in individuals and couples throughout adulthood. My work has investigated differential longitudinal trajectories of cognitive change in adults, and person-level indicators of change, such as personality, cognitive training, gait, and health behaviors, such as alcohol consumption, physical activity, chronic disease, and body mass index. I have also investigated the impact of cognitive and behavioral interventions in older adults, and the impact on everyday problem solving and functioning.
My research includes use of both primary and secondary data, as well as descriptive, experimental, and intervention methodology. I collaborate with other researchers across the UN system, as well as at other universities. Recent work has focused on physical activity, gait variability, BMI, food choices and cognitive functioning. In addition, I have an ongoing series of studies focused on dual-tasking in everyday life, and the integration of technology to support medication adherence.
