I am interested in using neuroimaging methods (primarily MRI) to research the relationship between sex hormones and whole brain functional connectivity and structure. In particular, I want to explore this relationship during major life stages including menopause and puberty, as well as over the course of the menstrual cycle, to better understand how sex hormones influence cognitive processing.
