My research focuses on the characterization of cognitive change with age.  I am specifically interested in delineating the change between normal and pathologic changes associated with aging and developing therapies to delay decline.  

My area of expertise is neurodegenerative diseases and dementia with an emphasis on Alzheimer's disease.

Keywords: Alzheimer's disease.
