Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

Lisa F. Berkman focuses on Gerontology, Social support, Cohort study, Myocardial infarction and Activities of daily living. Lisa F. Berkman interconnects Demography, Cognition, Social environment, Public health and Risk factor in the investigation of issues within Gerontology. Her research in Demography intersects with topics in Socioeconomic status, Disease and Educational attainment.

She has researched Social support in several fields, including Social engagement, Interpersonal relationship and Social network. Her Social network research incorporates elements of Social relation and Social psychology. Her Cohort study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Odds ratio, Psychosocial, Clinical psychology, Prospective cohort study and Cohort.

Her most cited work include:

  • A short physical performance battery assessing lower extremity function: association with self-reported disability and prediction of mortality and nursing home admission. (5666 citations)
  • Social networks, host resistance, and mortality: a nine-year follow-up study of Alameda County residents (4177 citations)
  • From social integration to health: Durkheim in the new millennium. (3128 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Gerontology, Demography, Cohort, Social support and Socioeconomic status are her primary areas of study. Her Gerontology research includes themes of Epidemiology, Cohort study, Cognition, Activities of daily living and Public health. Her Demography research focuses on subjects like Odds ratio, which are linked to Logistic regression.

The various areas that Lisa F. Berkman examines in her Cohort study include Body mass index, Relative risk and Proportional hazards model. Her study on Social support also encompasses disciplines like

  • Psychiatry which connect with Clinical psychology,
  • Social network that connect with fields like Social psychology. Lisa F. Berkman usually deals with Socioeconomic status and limits it to topics linked to Environmental health and Social determinants of health.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (37.50%)
  • Demography (31.36%)
  • Cohort (20.13%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Demography (31.36%)
  • Longitudinal study (15.89%)
  • Gerontology (37.50%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Longitudinal study, Gerontology, Cognition and Cohort. Her Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Obesity, Epidemiology, Cohort study, Marital status and Confidence interval. Her Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Diabetes mellitus, Public health, Cross-sectional study and Depression.

Her work is dedicated to discovering how Longitudinal study, Social network are connected with Social psychology, Respondent and Rural area and other disciplines. Her Gerontology research incorporates themes from Cognitive impairment, MEDLINE, Dementia, Cognitive health and Numeracy. Her study looks at the relationship between Cohort and fields such as Population ageing, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • World Health Organization cardiovascular disease risk charts: revised models to estimate risk in 21 global regions (187 citations)
  • Cohort Profile: Health and Ageing in Africa: A Longitudinal Study of an INDEPTH Community in South Africa (HAALSI) (63 citations)
  • Age and Gender Differences in Social Network Composition and Social Support Among Older Rural South Africans: Findings From the HAALSI Study. (21 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

Lisa F. Berkman mainly focuses on Demography, Gerontology, Longitudinal study, Social network and Epidemiology. Her study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Psychological intervention, Family conflict, Blood pressure, Stressor and Social support. Her Gerontology study combines topics in areas such as Sleep in non-human animals, Actigraphy, Cognition, Sleep apnea and Cohort.

The Longitudinal study study combines topics in areas such as Social network analysis, Social psychology, Rural area and Interview. The study incorporates disciplines such as Age and gender, Marital status, Socioemotional selectivity theory and Interpersonal ties in addition to Social network.
