My research focuses on the neural representation of language and how this representation changes with age. In particular, I am interested in age-related differences in phonological and semantic aspects of language production. My lab and I combine behavioral, neuropsychological, and neuroimaging measures to examine the relations between age, cognition, and the brain. I have also investigated contributions of the right hemisphere to language with research studying figurative language, discourse, and novelty. Finally, I worked on the Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN) for 10 years focusing on best practices in neuroimaging and multi-site experiments.
