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. Questions about or requests for doctoral licensure verification should be directed to the doctoral program training director, Dr. Susan Woodhouse at email@example.com
