Scott Landes is an Associate Professor of Sociology and
Faculty Associate at the Aging Studies Institute. He received his PhD in
Sociology from the University of Florida in 2014. Informed by his interest in
medical sociology, aging and the life course, and disability theory, the
majority of his research focuses on health and mortality trends across the life
course for those with intellectual and developmental disability, and for
veterans. His other primary research focus addresses the intersections of intellectual
disability and social theory.
