Short biography and a description of your interest(s) in music and health: 
I have completed my Bachelor's in Music at the University of Michigan in 2009. Since then, I became a Registered Nurse and finished my PhD in Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania in 2017.
My interests include the impact of music on health and well-being of older adults with dementia. My recent studies focused on the impact of music on sleep in older adults with dementia. I am funded by the National Institute on Aging.
Collaboration Interests: 
I am open to collaboration especially in grant writing and doing research. I am open to working together with anyone across the US and internationally. I bring years of research and clinical practice in geriatrics. I am looking to collaborate with music therapists, students in this area, other researchers and experts in music cognition.
