Bio

Alzheimer’s disease is the only disease among the top 10 causes of death in Americans that cannot be prevented, slowed, or cured. Given the rapid growth of the aging population, it is urgent that we create interventions which can prevent cognitive decline. My interests as a clinician-researcher is to better understand cognitive aging and to develop interventions which can prevent cognitive decline in older adults. My specific area of interest is to understand how acute medical and surgical events, such as hospitalization, can have long-term cognitive and functional effects in older adults. My goal is to design interventions which can prevent cognitive and functional decline in older adults during the hospitalization and post-hospitalization period.
