How do social relationships hinder and heighten individuals’ optimal development across the life course?

How do community aging initiatives influence social and physical environments to promote older adults’ well-being and ability to age in place?

How can institutions of higher education provide formative experiences that prepare students as leaders for our aging society?

These are the focal questions that motivate my research, teaching, and service as an Assistant Professor of Social Work at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. This website provides an overview of my work in these areas, as well as information about various ways to contact me.
