Malcolm Cutchin received a BA in Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin in 1984 and a MA and PhD in Geography at the University of Kentucky in 1992 and 1995. He previously held appointments at Middlebury College (Geography), the University of Texas Medical Branch (Occupational Therapy & Sealy Center on Aging), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, Institute on Aging, & Department of Geography). His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and his work generally falls into the category of human-place relationships and well-being. Project foci have included rural physicians and communities, assisted living residences, ethnic populations living near petrochemical plants, and preventive home visits for at-risk older adults. He uses both qualitative and quantitative methods in research, and he has an abiding interest in philosophy and theory—the writings of John Dewey and those who study Dewey figure prominently in his thinking and writing. He has been actively involved in groups within the Association of American Geographers, the Southern Gerontological Society, and the Society for the Study of Occupation: USA. From 2007 to 2011, he was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Applied Gerontology.
