How Dr. Luo’s research is transforming health care

Ye’s research examines how life transitions in old age, such as retirement, grandparenting, living arrangements, and life events (e.g., elder abuse) affect the well-being of older adults. She then strives to understand how social services and social support at the individual, family, community and societal levels modify these relationships.
