Research Interests

Eric’s research examines when, under what contexts, and for whom psychosocial factors are particularly relevant for cognitive health and aging. He is specifically interested in employing intraindividual variability approaches to assess linkages among modifiable psychosocial risk factors (e.g., affect, control beliefs, personality) and early indicators of age-related cognitive decline and pathological impairment (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease). As a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Pathways Program, Eric will investigate the mechanistic pathways of these associations through ecological momentary assessment techniques, and examine the extent to which tailoring interventions may maximize efficacy and resources in interventions aimed to optimize cognitive health.
