Research Interests: My research interests involve investigating how cognitive functioning and the brain change with age and disease. In particular, I am interested in how lifestyle, genetic, well-being, and health related factors can impact cognition and the brain in aging and cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s disease. The main goals in my research include: 1) Examining the relationship between neural processes and cognition using neuropsychological and electroencephalographical measures and 2) Linking brain changes with cognitive and clinical outcomes in subjective cognitive decline and dementia using large open-access datasets.

Research Topics: Alzheimer’s disease,¬†aging, subjective cognitive decline, cognition, event-related potentials, big data analysis
