Research Focus


I am carrying out research aimed at improving our understanding of how cognitive functions break down in dementia due to disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia. My research also includes the development of cognitive tests for the evaluation of dementia, such as the Toronto Cognitive Assessment and the Object Alternation Test, as well as studies on clock drawing as a cognitive assessment tool. In addition, I have special expertise in distance learning at a global level using videoconferencing, an area in which I have taken a major leadership role
