"Age-based dissociations in neural networks associated with task-switching based conflict resolution."
My research interests involve the intersection between cognitive control (how we appropriately guide and control our behavior depending on our current goals) and memorial and affective processes. I use both behavioral and neuroimaging (fMRI) methods to explore these interactions in normal aging and diseases of aging, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. I received a PhD in Psychology from Columbia University in 2014, and have since been a Post Doctoral Fellow in the Stern Lab, Division of Cognitive Neuroscience, Department of Neurology at CUMC.
