On Thursday, former Marine Daniel Harris testified before a Michigan court about the allegations of joining a militia plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and blow up her vacation home bridge. While giving testimony before jurors, Daniel called an FBI informant a “b—-.”

Prosecutors have detailed a 2020 plot by Harris, Adam Fox, Barry Croft Jr. and Brandon Caserta who were dissatisfied with Gov. Abbott’s COVID-19 restrictions.

Her current research focuses on three themes: 1) Ethnoracial disparities in brain health and dementia outcomes; 2) Early-life contributions to cognitive aging; and 3) Metabolic and vascular influences on brain aging.
