My research focuses on geropsychiatric nursing.   Areas of interest include substance abuse and depression in older adults, as well as dementia care. 

Currently, I am working on a funded study to understand prescription psychotherapeutic drug use in older adults.  In addition, I conduct research in family caregivers of people with cognitive impairments.  I am working on a funded study to understand medication management and psychosocial and physical well-being in family caregivers of people with dementia.
