Meet Our 2023 Spotlight Scholar
University of Florida
Emily is entering her third year of the Clinical and Health Psychology Ph.D. program with a specialization in Neuropsychology at the University of Florida. Broadly, Emily’s research focuses on the intersection among biomarkers, cardiovascular risk factors, and cognition in Alzheimer’s and related dementias across diverse populations. She hopes that her research will help improve early detection of atypical cognitive decline and better predict disease progression to allow for earlier treatment planning and improved quality of life for individuals with dementia. In her free time, Emily enjoys spending time exploring the outdoors with her dog and going scuba diving in the Florida springs!
