Sean Clouston Associate Professor Family Population and Preventive Medicine Program in Public Health Renaissance School of Medicine

Biography

Dr. Clouston is a longitudinal life course epidemiologist who is interested in using algorithms to examine the role of long-term and chronic exposures in relation to aging-related outcomes in old age. He has a number of ongoing research projects: First, Dr. Clouston helps to monitor the role of long-duration exposures at the World Trade Center on neurological health of responders to the events following the 9/11/2001 attacks. A second line of research seeks to examine social determinants of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias using a novel method to algorithmically-diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. His work, however, is incorporated into a number of other research programs at Stony Brook University in the fields of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Computer Science.
