CV: Curriculum Vitae
My research focuses on health and mortality, the long term effects of natural disaster especially with regard to health and socioeconomic status, relationships between the status of women and women's health and prosperity, and family decision making. Of particular importance to research in the field of aging is the Fourth Indonesian Family Life Survey of Aging that is the 4th wave of an on-going longitudinal survey of close to 40,000 respondents. A second study in Indonesia looks at the evolution of well-being among older adults after the tsunami of December 2004. In assessing damage in Sumatra, my research team was able, through the use of a GIS, to link data collected via satellite to census and survey data collected on the ground. This has allowed the rapid estimation of mortality and disease burdens associated with natural disasters.
