    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am a neurologist and clinical researcher. As a neurologist, I work with neurophysiology, epilepsy, language problems and stroke. I am a member of the Epilepsy, Behavioral Neurology and Stroke Divisions in my Department. As a scientist, my research focuses on understanding structural and functional network adaptations to brain injury, particularly regarding language impairments (aphasia) after stroke and its recovery. I also study neuronal networks associated with epilepsy and its response to treatment.

    Structural and functional MRI are the main research tools used in my lab, but we also work heavily with neurophysiology (scalp and intracranial EEG) as well as behavioral language treatments for language.

    One of the most gratifying aspects of my job is to work with students and post-docs. I am fortunate to lead a tremendous group of talented individuals, and I am always learning from all of them.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
