Brief Description of Research Interest :
My training is in better understanding the relationship between cognitive and physical health in older adults. Increasingly, I am interested in examining the relationships between will (motivation), skill (baseline functioning, especially high-risk samples), and thrill (enjoyment, energy, etc.) on training outcomes. For example, does an older adult at high risk of mobility impairment but who is highly motivated and enjoys exercise benefit more from an exercise program compared to someone who looks similar but is at lower risk of mobility impairment?
