About me

  • Postdoctoral fellow interested in the study of inter-individual differences in cognitive decline and dementia, as well as the pathological cascade of
    Alzheimer's disease and early detection methods.
    My research experience has been primarily focused on investigating the impact of stress on cognitive functioning and the individual differences that may influence this relationship. Through this work, I have become particularly interested in the field of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease. As a psychologist, I am particularly keen on exploring the potential for early detection of AD and understanding how it relates to cognitive and mood changes. I am excited about the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing efforts in
    this field and look forward to continuing my work in this area.
