Bio

I am a clinical geropsychologist.

Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of four broad areas: sociocultural experience, cognition, aging, and health and health disparities. My research examines the influence of social and health disparities on cognitive aging in African American adults and has two main areas of focus: 1) To examine how individual differences in social and health factors influence cognitive aging across the lifespan in African Americans; 2) To develop and implement physical and cognitive health interventions to improve cognitive function and prevent cognitive decline and incipient dementia in African American communities at disproportionate risk.
