About Christopher N Kaufmann

Dr. Kaufmann is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics (HOBI) at the University of Florida College of Medicine. He is a public health researcher with interests at the intersection of aging, sleep, and health services research. His research focuses on using epidemiologic data to identify patterns in use of health services for sleep disorders among older adults and examining how such patterns affect trajectories of aging (e.g., cognitive decline and neurodegeneration) across the life course.
