Research Interests

My research interests encompass many advanced MRI brain imaging techniques and currently focus on mapping neural networks to investigate brain neuroplasticity after early injury. Of particular interest is the use of neuroimaging to measure therapeutic effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on structural and functional networks and how integration of multimodal imaging may identify individualized rehabilitation targets for children with cerebral palsy after stroke to maximize therapeutic effects.
