Profile

I conducted graduate work at the Rotman Research Institute and received my PhD from the University of Toronto, Canada, under the supervision of Prof. Cheryl Grady. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at CCD, examining neural plasticity in patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and in healthy adults.

The central focus of my research is on whole-brain analysis and modelling of functional connectivity. I use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and multivariate statistical tools, such as partial least squares (PLS) analysis and independent component analysis (ICA).

I investigate higher cognitive processes, such as memory and language, in both healthy and disordered populations. My specific research interests include the exploration of neuronal reorganization due to ageing, non-traumatic brain injury (e.g., stroke), or degenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's).
