Research Interests and Research Summary

My career goal is to advance our knowledge and understanding of the Human Brain and the complex networks underlying it. I am a clinician who is familiar with the pressing need for quick and reliable tools for mapping of brain functions and I am an epileptologist with an extensive experience in invasive intracranial EEG evaluations, source-localization techniques, brain connectivity by cortico-cortical evoked potentials, and functional mapping. It is my honor that our line of work has received prestigious awards and funding support.
