My program of research examines age-related changes in cognition, brain structure and function, and functional independence in older adults. Specifically, I am interested in how aspects of health and lifestyle (e.g., nutrition, physical health and activity, cognitive engagement) impact the maintenance of brain functioning in old age, with a focus on using these factors to develop interventions for cognitive dysfunction.
