My research interests center broadly on the question of differential lifetime experiences on the current performance and adjustment of older adults. An area of interest involves designing instruments to measure lifetime changes in psychological characteristics in order to examine the impact of those experiences on competence in old age. Although the technique for measuring lifetime changes was first developed for alcohol use, currently it is being used to measure lifetime stress experiences. My current research examines the interplay of stress and coping from a lifetime perspective.
