Position title: Assistant Professor

Wan-chin Kuo, RN, PhD seeks to understand how stress influences middle-aged and older adults’ 24-hour activity cycle and cardiometabolic health. Her research expertise includes meta-analysis, mediation/moderation analysis and cohort studies. Her recent findings highlight the ongoing sleep and sedentary problems in older adults living with financial disadvantage during the COVID-19 pandemic and suggest that optimizing the sleep-wake cycle and physical activities is a crucial step to alleviate stress-driven metabolic health disparities in the post-COVID-19 era.
