My research contributes to improving diagnosis of neurocognitive disorders in adult and geriatric individuals, particularly those who have conditions that may mimic, mask or alter signs of dementia, or increase risk for future decline. A current major focus of my work is clarifying the manifestations and causes of cognitive impairment in older adults with ADHD, specifically in relation to prodromal dementia. My research integrates neuropsychological and neuroimaging assessment measures, as well as biomarker data to inform mechanisms of disease.
