I work in Dr. Carson Smith's exercise for brain health lab where we look at the effects that exercise has on older adults with genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease. I enjoy running, playing soccer, and cooking! My research interests include using multimodal neuroimaging techniques to ask questions about how lifestyle choices, such as exercise, diet, electronic use, and sleep, impact the microstructural environment and memory networks of the aging hippocampus.
