Research Interests

Broadly, my research interests are in the areas of Clinical Neuropsychology and Health Psychology.

The focus of my program of research is on the intersection of health factors/behaviors and cognitive functioning. Specific aims include examining (1) the relationship of health status (e.g., cardiovascular function), biological, and behavioral factors on cognition, and (2) wellness-focused interventions.
