I am passionate about providing mentorship, support, and resources to others pursuing higher education, especially those pursuing the field of neuropsychology. Increasing the quality of education and overall well-being of those from historically underserved populations is my purpose.

My research has focused on understanding the role of genetic, biological, and modifiable environmental risk and protective factors that impact cognitive and functional ability in older adults, with an additional interest in understanding racial health disparities within this context. I am interested in investigating the neural mechanisms of normal and pathological cognitive and functional aging.
