The role of the gut microbiome in brain health.Metabolomics and brain healthEpidemiology of Neurodegenerative Disease
I am an epidemiologist with over 10 years of experience in epidemiological studies of neurological disease. My research interests include traditional neuro-epidemiology, as well as the role of the microbiome and metabolomics in brain health. I am currently PI of an R01 from the NINDS to study the gut microbiome in Parkinson’s disease (PD). I collaborate extensively with investigators at the Harvard School of Public Health, in the Department of Veterans Affairs and at UMass Medical School.
