Aschwanden, a post-doctoral researcher in FSU's College of Medicine, received her doctorate in Psychology in 2018 from the University of Zurich, Switzerland. During the work on her doctorate, she was a fellow of the International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course, a joint international Ph.D. program of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the University of Michigan, the University of Virginia, and the University of Zurich.
Her research addresses the associations between personality, health, cognitive aging, and dementia. She investigates these links using data from both long-term longitudinal and ambulatory assessment studies. Her recent work has focused on the evaluation of risk factors for dementia applying machine learning and on the predictive value of cognitive performance and personality traits for daily cognitive behaviors.
Aschwanden gave her talk on September 20.
