My research focuses on brain-body connections involved in human health and performance. My goal is to understand differences in resiliency, growth and rehabilitation by investigating the pathways and mechanistic drivers that shape physiological, cognitive, and clinical presentations. In this way, I use patient data and computational strategies to dissect complex physical and mental health problems, to discover critical insights for risk classification and personalized care. As a postdoctoral fellow, I have taken this approach to study genetic, cardiovascular and inflammatory influences on the cognitive performance of older adults, and collaborated on multi-modal exercise and cognitive training trails to promote fitness and memory. This research aligns with my clinical training as a rehabilitation psychologist, with the goal of maximizing functional outcomes of my patients.
