Felix Kabo obtained his professional architecture degree and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. His primary research interest is how physical and social contexts shape outcomes related to: collaboration and innovation; and aging, dementia, and health disparities. Addressing these issues entails applying advanced social science analytical approaches including sociospatial network science. It also calls for synthesizing and analyzing complex datasets covering individual- (e.g. race, gender, cognitive functioning, etc.) and contextual-level factors (e.g. social networks, amenities, services, etc.).
