Academic interests: 

My research interest is related to understand the dynamic processes of how biological, psychological, behavioral, and environmental elements interact and shape a person's life and why individuals show great individual differences in the processes of aging. I am focusing on long-term effects of personality, personal goals, emotion regulation, and health behaviors on health outcomes/mortality in later life, using longitudinal statistics including multilevel modeling, survival analysis, structural equation modeling, and dyadic daily diary analysis.


I received my doctorate degree in Human Development & Family Studies with a minor in Gerontology from Oregon State University. I am currently a research associate in the School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences at Oregon State University. I am also an instructor teaching HDFS 314, Adult Development and Aging, in winter and spring 2017.
