Research Interests

My research interests are broadly in the area of clinical neuropsychology. In particular, I am interested in ways to advance neuropsychological assessment through research on the measurement of cognitive abilities and emotional functioning. My lab focuses on a number of different populations all with the goal of improving knowledge of tests and measures and their application to addressing clinically relevant problems.
