Research Summary

My research is focused on understanding the association of sleep disturbances and psychopathology with cognitive and functional outcomes in later life, and particularly with the development of Alzheimer's disease. The ultimate goal is to use this knowledge to develop interventions to curb the burden of Alzheimer's disease, and more generally improve cognitive and functional trajectories.
