My research in neuroimaging and neuropsychology has a common focus: to develop research-driven approaches that can be implemented clinically to better understand and assess neuropsychological conditions. Specifically, my research uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques, including functional (fMRI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DTI), to study the brain-behavior relationship in patient populations and healthy controls.

My lab is currently studying neuroimaging biomarkers in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, changes in the brain that result from mild traumatic brain injury (concussion), and variables that impact the progression of multiple sclerosis. 


Respect for Diversity: It is my intent that students from diverse backgrounds and perspectives be well-served, and that the diversity that students bring be viewed as a resource, strength and benefit.
