Dr. Stall is a practicing geriatrician and early career researcher with Women’s Age Lab and Women’s College Hospital’s Research and Innovation Institute, and an assistant professor in the department of medicine at the University of Toronto. Inspired and informed by his frontline clinical experience, his research focuses on pressing issues confronting the health and wellbeing of older adults. He is especially interested in the intersection between his research and public policy and health systems decision-making. His research focuses on four major and inter-related themes:

  1. Unpaid family caregiving, especially for persons living with dementia.
  2. Delivery of care in Canadian long-term care homes, including physician commitment.
  3. Palliative and end-of-life care for persons living with advanced dementia.
  4. Drug safety for older adults.

His research leverages a variety of quantitative and qualitative sources of data (population-based health administrative databases, national surveys, focus groups) and uses innovative analytic methods. Recognizing that many determinants of ageing are sex and gender-based, his work applies a sex & gender-based analysis plus (SGBA+) to all research.

He is committed to training and developing excellent researchers focused on ageing, dementia and family caregiving. He currently sits on the thesis committee at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME) at the University of Toronto and supervises a number of graduate students, undergraduate students, medical students, and residents.
