Broadly speaking, I am interested in quantitative and computational approaches to neuroimaging, particularly applied to understanding cerebrovascular disease and amnestic diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. My prior work has focused on quantifying MRI-based biomarkers of cerebrovascular disease and tying them to clinical measures of memory loss and vascular pathologies. A specific research focus of mine has been the role of increased nocturnal blood pressure as a biomarker of vascular dysregulation and the corresponding increased risk of small-vessel cerebrovascular disease and accompanying memory impairment.
