Supervisor: Dr. Andrea Piccinin
My research interests lie in the neuropsychology of olfactory cognition. Under the supervision of Dr. Piccinin I examine neuropsychological and chemosensory functioning across the lifespan in the context of age-related cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases.
