Congratulations to Dr. Azer!
Lilian graduated from UCR with a BA in 2014 and then a MA in clinical psychology from CalState in 2017. After this brief detour, for lack of a better word, Lilian came back and joined our CCN program as a PhD student.
Lilian’s research focuses on the impacts of various health-related factors on cognition and has been supported by two NIH grants and a UC grant. She has produced 4 publications and received various awards and fellowships including the Dissertation Year Program Award from UCR, Mentoring and Career Development Award, summer DC policy internship, and a travel grant from Gerontological Society of America, and Elsevier/Vision Research Travel award from VSS.
Dr. Azer will be starting her postdoc training at UC Irvine in Stark lab.
