Description of Research

My research exists at the intersection of neuropsychological performance, cardiovascular health, and neurophysiological structure. My current projects revolve around the impact that psychosocial factors, particularly stress, influence cognitive functioning and brain structure. Within this, I also explore how race and socioeconomic status play into these interactions.
