Dr. Marfeo is an Assistant Professor within the Tufts University Occupational Therapy Department. Dr. Marfeo’s research interests include measurement development, work disability and healthy aging across the adult lifespan. Specifically, Dr. Marfeo’s primary research goals are directed towards understanding the interactions between environmental demands, adaptations, and aging as it affects a person’s health-related quality of life—including participating in the workforce. Dr. Marfeo’s research specialization and clinical background as an occupational therapist allows her to bridge gaps between health services research and clinical applications of that research. Dr. Marfeo’s approach to research integrates paradigms of disability, aging, public health, and rehabilitation research.
