Background and Interests:
I am a biomedical engineer and a cognitive neuroscientist by training. My work focuses on optimizing neurorehabilitation approaches for the treatment of cognitive disorders in acquired and neurodegenerative diseases. My postdoctoral work has primarily been focused on examining the efficacy and the neurophysiological bases of noninvasive brain stimulation treatments in post-stroke aphasia and primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Over the past 10 years, I have used a variety of methodologies, including transcranial direct current and magnetic stimulation (tDCS, high-definition tDCS, TMS), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and anatomical (voxel-based morphometry, voxel-based lesion symptom mapping) and functional MR imaging (fMRI), combined with neuropsychological testing and univariate and multivariate (partial least squares, principal component analysis) statistical approaches.
