Dr. Smith applies life course and lifespan developmental theory to the study of health and well-being in later life.

She is currently PI of a project collecting, evaluating, and linking retrospective life histories about education, residential, job, family, and health to cognitive aging and transitions to AD/ADRD. She also serves as a co-investigator in the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) and is a MiCDA affiliate.
