A major thrust of her research is understanding the psychological and behavioral impact of receiving a diagnosis of, or learning that one is at high risk for, a cognitive disorder of aging like Alzheimer’s disease. This work began with a seminal publication on the uncertainty experienced by patients living with a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment and now extends to examining how family members are impacted by prognostic testing for Alzheimer’s disease. She is especially interested in bettering the field’s understanding of how patients and families react to learning results of biomarker-derived risk estimates for Alzheimer’s disease. Her methodological experience includes qualitative and quantitative approaches, with a particular interest in dyadic analysis.
