Biography

YenYing Lim is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Neurology of Brown University, as part of the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network Trials Unit (DIAN-TU) Cognitive Core. Yen received her Ph.D. from The University of Melbourne in 2013, and this was conducted within the Australian Imaging, Biomarkers and Lifestyle (AIBL) Study. Yen's research interest include the assessment of cognitive change in dementia, the relationship between neuroimaging, genetic and cognitive markers of dementia, and cross-cultural manifestations of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
