Dr. Monica Ly is a clinical neuropsychologist with experience in aging, dementia, and head injury (traumatic brain injury and/or repetitive head impacts). She balances clinical work within BMC Neurology and research with the BU Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center. Her research focuses on cognitive and psychiatric outcomes at the intersection of head injury and aging. Her work combines neuropsychological test data and fluid and neuroimaging biomarkers to improve the assessment and diagnosis of head injury.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Dr. Ly currently serves as professional co-chair of the Asian Neuropsychological Association Membership Committee, an international organization aimed to connect and provide resources to neuropsychologists of Asian descent and neuropsychologists working with Asian populations. She has also served as peer mentor within the Asian Neuropsychological Association for several years, advising future neuropsychologists of Asian descent about career development. In addition, she serves on the New2Neuropsychology Student Engagement Committee, an organization aimed at providing resources and facilitating networking opportunities to under-represented students who are interested in careers in neuropsychology. In this role, she has helped organize Meet & Learn events drawing dozens of undergraduates, post-baccs, and high school students interested in learning more about what it is like to become a neuropsychologist.
