Jordan graduated from the University of Southern California with a BSc in Economics and Mathematics in 2012. Before coming to Penn, he worked as a statistician in the Center for Health and Community at the University of California, San Francisco. His research interests include population aging and health, biodemography, life-course epidemiology, statistical and machine learning methods, and environmental stress. His current work examines (1) the contribution of early life exposures to later-life cognitive impairment within a gene-environment framework and (2) apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotype-specific mortality risk using demographic synthesis. Jordan’s favorite children's book is Harold and the Purple Crayon.
