Professional Interests

I have a life-course developmental orientation, a background in gerontology and cognitive aging, developmental psychology, prevention science, and public mental health, and postdoctoral training in neuropsychology, neuroscience, epidemiology, and biostatistics.  My major research interests are focused in three interrelated areas:  1) identification of early risk and protective factors on later life cognitive health and daily function; 2) prevention of age-related cognitive decline, memory loss, depression, and disability; 3)study of the short- and long-term outcomes of cognitive intervention trials with children and with normal and impaired older adults.
