My primary research interests include several overlapping areas --- the links between health, cognition, and daily functioning in older adults; personal and training factors that influence trainees' interest and attitudes toward working with older adult clients; and the accuracy of self-reported information. In addition, I use my skills as a methodologist to collaborate with colleagues in the College of Education on a variety of topics (e.g., numeracy skill development; understanding predictors of academic and behavioral performance; mathematics problem-solving).
Since the fall of 2014, I have served as co-director of the counseling programs and, as of fall 2019, am the program director. As part of my role, I also coordinate admissions to the on-campus master's and doctoral counseling programs. Questions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Admissions questions about the master's program in international school counseling should be directed to Dr. Chris Liang.
