  • Integrated advanced imaging approach to studying human brain aging

Research Abstract:

My research covers a breadth of advanced CT, MRI, and PET brain imaging methods to better understand cerebral blood flow and metabolism in the course of normal aging as well as in the context of cerebrovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Further, I have maintained an ongoing role in applying neuroimaging to help with global health concerns, including malaria.

Mentorship and Commitment to Diversity Statement:
Mentorship is a favorite part of my job and I am committed to our students and trainees, according to their goals and needs. Our lab is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of our activities ranging from research participation to education and employment.
