Personal Statement

Currently, I am a Research Coordinator at Rutgers University-Newark at the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience. My research interests include cognitive function, public health, and health disparities. My principal area of interest is the use of non-pharmacological interventions, such as exercise, to improve cognition and everyday function in older adults, especially those within racial/ethnic minority groups. Another interest of mine is to understand the impact social determinants of health, genetics, and neural markers have on preclinical Alzheimer's disease.
