Jennifer A. Ailshire, PhD's Bio

Jennifer Ailshire is Professor of Gerontology and Associate Dean of Research at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. She also co-directs the USC/UCLA Center on Biodemography and Population Health and the USC AD/ADRD RCMAR. Ailshire’s research has demonstrated the importance of physical and social environments, and their interactions, in determining health and wellbeing in older adults. Her current lines of research include examinations of the role of air pollution and extreme heat in cognitive health and dementia risk. She is the architect of the Contextual Data Resource (CDR), which can be linked to longitudinal studies of aging in the U.S. to facilitate examination of socioenvironmental determinants of health and aging. Ailshire is currently expanding the CDR for researchers interested in understanding the role of the exposome in dementia and AD/ADRD risk.
