Research

Description of Research Expertise:

My training in clinical epilepsy and biomedical research represents over a decade of dedication to my career goal: to utilize both the advancing fields of invasive neurophysiology and neuroimaging to better localize epileptic networks in medication refractory epilepsy patients. It is my hope that improving localization will enable epileptologists to better assign individual patients to the most efficacious therapy, for example, seizure control devices, resective surgery, or continued medical management.
