Personal Statement

I lead the Brain, Environment, Aging, and Mobility (BEAM) lab. My research aims to improve mobility of older adults, reducing disability and keeping individuals in their communities. I use an inter-disciplinary approach to understand how aging, and particularly brain aging, affects an individual's ability to navigate the complex community environments that we experience every day. My research combines advanced methodologies in neuroimaging , gait analysis, neighborhood assessment, and longitudinal epidemiology to determine mechanisms of mobility decline and inform future intervention research.
