I am an assistant professor in the sociology department at Oklahoma State University. My research leverages a broad array of data (e.g., prospective surveys, ecological momentary assessments, time diaries, geo-coded mortality records, neuroimaging phenotypes) to explore the types of communities, social networks, and families within which individuals are embedded and how these social contexts influence health and well-being. I am the principal investigator of the Social Environment and Cognitive Health in Urban and Rural Areas (SECHURA) study—a panel study funded by the National Institute on Aging.
