Research/interests: Health services research, health disparities in dementia care
Hometown: Ann Arbor, MI
Interest Satement: I earned my bachelors degree in psychology and biology from Beloit College, which sparked my interest in Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. I then worked for two years with a research group at UW-Madison focused on improving care for older adults with dementia especially those from vulnerable populations. I joined the population health sciences department to help me develop research questions in this area and gave me the methodological tools to pursue them.
