Research Project

My research inquires what daily activities (e.g., social, physical, cognitive activities) and in which patterns older adults should do to maintain their cognitive health and wellbeing. I am also interested in contextual and psychological factors that enable older adults to maintain their activities in face of cognitive decline. In my research, I work with mobile sensing data (e.g., audio recordings, accelerometers) and population surveys, ranging from over seconds to over decades. I often work with mixed-effects models, random intercept cross-lagged panel model, and actor–partner interdependence model.
