Fields of Interest
My primary interests are architecture, gerontology, human behavior, health and well-being. I am particularly interested in the person-environment transaction to negotiate the decrease of older adult’s physical and cognitive ability, especially within the residential environments. I am also interested in designing therapeutic environment in healthcare settings.
