Fields of Interest: 

Matthew previously worked at the Memory and Aging Center coordinating the Longitudinal Brain Aging Program from 2013–2015 before leaving to pursue his PhD degree in Clinical Psychology at Washington University in St. Louis. His research during graduate school focused on improving knowledge and awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia. Matthew has returned to the Memory and Aging Center as a postdoctoral psychology fellow working with Dr. Joel Kramer and Dr. Kate Possin. Matthew’s clinical interests involve improving access to short-term psychological care immediately following a dementia diagnosis to help patients and families better understand their diagnosis, process their emotions about the disease, and plan adaptively for the future.
