Curriculum Vitae

Background and Interests:

I am a neurologist and cognitive neuroscientist. My research focuses on neural systems underlying human language processing and concept representation, speech perception, reading, and aphasia. Much of this work is based on fMRI measurements in healthy people, combined with psycholinguistic and psychophysical measurements of behavior. My clinical practice focuses on patients with aphasia, and I study the pathological correlates of specific language deficits in these patients using voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping and fMRI. I have also worked extensively on applications of fMRI for pre-surgical mapping, including development and validation of fMRI language lateralization methods and prediction of language and verbal memory outcomes.
