Dr. Harvey's research interests fall in the statistical challenges of analyzing high-dimensional data, particularly neuroimaging data. Specific focus is the development of models and approaches that make use of the anatomy and underlying biology of disease processes. The majority of her collaborative research falls in the area of Alzheimer?s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases and how neuroimaging can help identify individuals in the earliest stages of disease.
