Field: Translational Neuroimaging
Topic: Clinical Applications of Neuroimaging & TMS
My current research project is looking at the effect of TMS treatments to the insula affect the withdrawal symptoms for smokers by utilizing resting-state fMRI imaging and analysis techniques and determine imaging biomarkers that can be monitored for future treatments.
I am primary interested in topics of neurological disorders. Specifically, my main interests are in migraine, chronic pain, and neurodegenerative disorders, however all neurological disorders interest me for future endeavors. My goal is apply new methods of imaging and analysis to these conditions to hopefully explain more fully how they work.
