Jennifer Duncan Davis is a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy, and general medical neuropsychology. She completed her BA in Biopsychology at Bates College and her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology specialization) at the University of Utah. She came to Brown in 2000 to complete her predoctoral internship in neuropsychology and remained as a clinical fellow in adult general medical neuropsychology at Rhode Island Hospital (RIH). After completing her clinical fellowship, she joined the neuropsychology staff in the Department of Psychiatry at RIH and remained at Brown as a Dementia T32 fellow to continue her research training in aging and dementia. Her primary areas of research are in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's disease, including driving safety in individuals with early Alzheimer's disease, psychosocial interventions to improve cognition and quality of life in individuals with Alzheimer's disease, and dementia caregiver interventions.
