Renée K. Biss
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology track at the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
I completed my Ph.D. in 2014 and M.A. in 2008 in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, supervised by Dr. Lynn Hasher, and my B.A. in Psychology at McGill University in 2007.
From 2013-15, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Neuropsychology & Cognitive Health program at Baycrest, supervised by Dr. Kelly Murphy. From 2016-17, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Aging & Brain Health Innovation at Baycrest Health Sciences, the Ontario Telemedicine Network, and AGE-WELL NCE. My clinical experience includes work in private practice and at a specialized primary care clinic for people experiencing homelessness, the Inner City Family Health Team in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
My research explores ways to maximize cognitive health and emotional well-being across the lifespan, especially for older adults experiencing memory problems such as mild cognitive impairment and dementia.
