I combine my passions and work: I study the relationships between lifestyle (physical activity, fitness, cognitive stimulation, social engagement) and brain health in aging. I love people, sports, MRI machines, outdoor activities, traveling,  brain images of all kinds, art, and analytical riddles. I study neural plasticity (or whatever is meant by it) induced by positive lifestyle changes in older folks (randomized control trials). I want to help people age gracefully (both body and mind) and maintain their independence and life satisfaction as long as possible. In the future I want to study climbers' brain, as an extension to my current study on professional dancers. I want to get better understanding of the late life brain plasticity potential with machine learning. I am interested in wearable tech devices, intelligent housing, adult playgrounds, tech for the older citizens, and more.
