Research Bio

Dr. Shippee’s research focuses on two main topics: 1) quality of life (QOL) and other person-reported outcomes among older adults using long-term services and supports and 2) disparities in health outcomes over the life course. A growing portion of her work has focused on improving long-term care for persons with diagnoses of Alzheimer’s or other dementia (AD/ADRD), with the focus on quality of life and addressing disparities in care for those with AD/ADRD and their caregivers. She applies quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods approaches to survey and administrative data and intervention design. She also have extensive experience with multilevel modeling and complex data structures. Key concepts in her work include cumulative inequality theory, which she co-developed, and person-centered measures, including QOL.  Dr. Shippee is currently leading two large National Institutes of Health funded grants to address equity and improve quality of life for nursing home residents and people using home and community-based services. Her work also focuses on improving long-term care for older adults with diagnoses of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. She is also Principal Investigator of three contracts with MN Department of Human Services and a Co-Investigator on a number of federally funded grants.
