Research Interests

I am studying how epilepsy affects our cognition. I use advanced and non-invasive techniques to study how different parts of the brain communicate. Some of my research uses functional MRI, magnetoencephalography (a tool for measuring the magnetic fields produced by your brain), and high density electroencephalography (hdEEG).
