I am an epidemiologist, gerontologist, data scientist, and associate professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Public Health. I am passionate about researching healthy aging and late-life quality of life, and applying that understanding to improving the health of older adults and communities. Specifically, I have published research focusing on the preservation of physical and cognitive function, living and aging with disability, and detecting and preventing elder mistreatment. I also have a passion for data science and digital epidemiology. I'm committed to the idea of learning about -- and positively impacting -- health outcomes using a data-driven approach.
