He is particularly interested in biobehavioral predictors of these cognitive changes, including functional and structural brain markers, genomic markers, and mood.  Prior to his faculty appointment, he was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing and a doctoral student at the University of California, San Francisco School of Nursing.
