About me

I am a clinical neuroscientist specialized in neuroimaging, aging and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Currently, I am a post-doctoral researcher at Nordberg Translational Molecular Imaging Lab, where I perform research on amyloid and tau Positron emission tomography (PET) in AD. I'm particularly interested in understanding factors influencing AD heterogeneity, with the use of multimodal neuroimaging techniques.
