Our research focuses on cognitive health in culturally and linguistically diverse communities. We aim to identify risk and resilience factors that impact cognitive health, and to optimize precision in assessment of cognition through consideration of factors (e.g., linguistic, cultural, and educational experiences) that may impact the cognitive assessment process.
