Cognitive Neuroscience of Human Memory, Attention, and Aging
I conduct research on the cognitive neuroscience of human memory, attention, and aging. Within the domain of memory, I have a particular interest in how the brain constructs a temporally coherent past. More broadly, I am interested in how structural and functional changes in the brain across the lifespan affect cognitive processes, with a special emphasis on the vulnerability of memory in older adults. To address these broad questions, I employ functional neuroimaging (particularly machine learning analysis), ulta-high resolution 7T structural imaging, and behavioral studies.
