Jayandra Jung Himali, PhD, serves as an adjunct Associate Professor of Neurology and Biostatistics at Boston University Schools of Medicine and of Public Health, and a Center Faculty Member of the Framingham Heart Study (FHS). He has been engaged in collaborative public health research and teaching for over a decade. As a senior Biostatistician at the Neurology core of FHS, his research efforts are focused on the interrelated areas of: (1) the epidemiology of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and relating traditional and novel biomarkers to the risk of dementia and AD; (2) the epidemiology of stroke and vascular cognitive impairment; (3) understanding vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia including AD; and (4) investigating the role of modifiable lifestyle factors: sleep, diet and physical activity on the incidence of dementia, cognitive decline and MRI-defined brain aging. His research is also focused on outcome assessment in Epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and neuropathology. He has received the Nepal Bidhya Bhusan Class ‘A’ Medal from the government of Nepal for highest academic achievement in doctoral studies.
