Hanna is a doctoral student in the University of Florida’s Clinical Neuropsychology PhD program. Her research involves using multimodal neuroimaging techniques to assess individual differences in brain-based factors that contribute to cognitive decline in older adults. She is also involved in a Phase III clinical trial examining the efficacy of delivering noninvasive interventions (i.e., transcranial direct current stimulation and cognitive training) in older adults to improve thinking and memory. Clinically, she assists in conducting neuropsyschological evaluations for aging and neurodegenerative disease populations and delivers psychotherapeutic interventions to patients in her community. In her final years of her PhD program, Hanna will continue to investigate methods to slow down the onset of dementia and polish her clinical skills to become an independent scientist-practitioner in the field of Neuropsychology.
