Research Interests

Dr. Lisa D’Ambrosio is currently working on research with Dr. Joe Coughlin on the social aspects of aging. The questions focus what an aging population will need to enhance and improve the quality of life, and to enable elders to live independently longer. The focus is on not what products and services will be technologically feasible over the coming decades, but rather what will be socially and personally acceptable to this population, with its changing demands for transportation, need for re-design of physical spaces (including the home and workplace), and power in the consumer and employment markets. Dr. Coughlin and Dr. D’Ambrosio are in the process of designing a Delphi study to explore some of these questions.
