Research Summary

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is the most prevalent anxiety disorder in older adults and has been associated with worse quality of life and increased all-cause morbidity and mortality.  Identifying the neural mechanisms for late-life anxiety is crucial for a better understanding of disease pathophysiology and treatment outcomes. I aim to explore neuroanatomical correlates of anxiety and their relationship to cognition and brain aging.  

Career Goals

My career goal is to become a psychiatrist equally devoted to providing clinical care for my patients and to the study of scientific innovation in psychiatry.
