Academic interests: 

I am interested in understanding family care, particularly for families in later life. As a qualitative researcher, I focus on how sociocultural ideas and practices surrounding care shape caregivers\' identities and relationships, and how caregivers creatively use sociocultural ideas to construct purposeful lives. Recently, I have studied adult sibling, mother-daughter, mother-child with autism, and grandmother-grandchild caregiving ties.
