About us

In the spirit of Northeastern’s mission, our journey is fueled by theory and inspired by utility. This is not just research; it’s a mission to empower lives. With each discovery, we inch closer to a world where every individual enjoys the gift of improved health and effective living.

Our journey is theoretical, our impact is practical, and our inspiration knows no bounds.

Our Mission

We investigate the effects of lifestyle choices, events, and health behaviors (e.g., physical activity, diet) and their physiological sequelae (e.g., fitness, adiposity, biomarkers of health) on brain and cognition. From a neuroimaging perspective, our interests lie in understanding how health influences brain and behavior as it relates to increased health and effective functioning for individuals across the lifespan.
