Research summary

I am interested in combining machine learning techniques with structural and functional neuroimaging data to identify atypical brain development and aging. I am especially interested in using these methods to develop individualized measures that can be used to assess future trajectory. 

Past research interests

During my doctoral studies, I worked with Dr. John Kounios to investigate the neural basis of creativity and insight using EEG.
