Matt is a second-year graduate student. His primary research interests include examining the psychosocial effects of dementia (and dementia diagnostic disclosure) on people with dementia and their caregivers. He is broadly interested in ways to gauge what older adults in the community know about dementia and investigations of educational efforts to increase awareness and knowledge. His first project in the lab described the speech patterns that arise during dementia diagnostic disclosure sessions and their relation to caregiver and patient depression and anxiety.
