Research and Projects

My research deals with the heterogeneity of psychological functioning, well-being, and health in midlife and old age. I use experimental and survey methodologies to investigate age-cohort differences and age-related change in cognitive functioning, self-regulation, and well-being. My current research focuses on time use and experienced wellbeing after age 50, psychological vitality in the oldest-old, life course predictors of subjective well-being and health, self-perceptions of aging, and cognitive aging.
