B.A. Psychology, University of Notre Dame, 2014
I am a first year graduate student in clinical psychology, specializing in clinical neuropsychology. I am so excited to be working in Dr. Lee Ryan's Cognition and Neuroimaging Laboratory. My primary interest is in health risk factors for cognitive decline and neurodegeneration in aging, especially inflammation-related risk. For the past two years I have worked as an intern at the National Institute on Aging examining cortisol's contribution to memory impairment and brain atrophy.
