Jessica BoveBiography

Jessica Bove is a doctoral student at the University of Florida in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology. She graduated from Ursinus College in 2015 with a dual degree in Neuroscience and Psychology. After graduation, she worked as the senior psychometrist at Emory Rehabilitation Hospital for Dr. Anthony Stringer and Dr. Suzanne Penna, administering neuropsychological testing and cognitive rehabilitation therapy to a wide range of clinical patients. She also worked for several years as a research assistant at the University of Pennsylvania’s Frontotemporal Degeneration Center (FTDC) as the site coordinator for two international consortium studies using multimodal approaches to understand disease course in patients with, or at risk of developing, various rare neurodegenerative diseases. She is currently a first-year student in the Neuropsychology track, where she works under the mentorship of Dr. Russell Bauer.

Research Focus

Jessica is interested in examining the impact of head injuries on cognitive aging and neurodegeneration.
