Eva’s research focuses on identifying genetic risk factors for disease and environmental factors that can modify that risk. Her interests also extend to the applications of that research in a policy setting. She is currently investigating the relationship among Alzheimer’s disease (AD) biomarkers, lifestyle factors, and cumulative genetic risk for AD, as measured through polygenic scores. She is pursuing a Master of Public Affairs at the Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs and a PhD in Population Health. Eva is an NIA trainee at the Center for Demography of Health and Aging.
