Bio: I am interested in studying error patterns and error monitoring processes in individuals diagnosed with a dementia. More specifically, I would like to elucidate how deficits in error monitoring affect an individual's capacity to carry out activities of daily living and function autonomously. Finally, I would also like to examine error performance and neurocognitive functioning in older adults with limited access to geriatric health care. In my spare time I enjoy kickboxing and camping, though rarely at the same time.
