      Alexandra received her PhD from UCLA in 2014 in Health Psychology with a minor in Quatitative Psychology where she studied the influence of stress across the lifespan on health outcomes in adulthood such as self-reported health, acute stress reactivity, and inflammation. Much of her work has focused on understanding these relationships in highly stressed populations such as younger breast cancer survivors. She is currently developing her expertise in cognitive processing, working to uncover the role that chronic stress plays in increasing the risk and trajectory of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Her larger goal is to discover what psychological interventions will work to decrease the negative impacts of chronic and acute stress on well-being.
