Research Focus

My laboratory is interested in brain network analysis in neurological disorders using neuroimaging and electrophysiology, with a particular focus in epilepsy. Knowledge of brain network abnormalities in epilepsy will help us better understand the behavioral and cognitive effects of seizures over time, and may lead to better treatments for epilepsy, including surgical procedures and neuromodulation. Our current projects include human fMRI, DTI, and intracranial EEG studies in epilepsy and other neurological disorders.
