My research focuses on three key knowledge gaps in hemophilia: 1) mechanisms leading to decreased brain volumes in hemophilia A, 2) defining the executive dysfunction and behavior changes in hemophilia A, and 3) neuroinflammatory biomarkers to predict changes in the brain. My research laboratory...

My research focuses on how focal brain lesions lead to behavioral changes in stroke patients. Generally, I am interested in how the location of a lesion influences behavioral changes. Specifically, I am investigating how lesion location modifies a patient's likelihood of developing post-stroke pain...

The human mind is fascinating. How we think, how we remember and how our brains change over time. Underneath all these “routine” processes lies complex biological mechanisms that are constantly changing. I am interested in studying these biological mechanisms that underlie “basic” human tasks such...

Medulloblastoma (MB) is the most common malignant brain tumor in children. These tumors arise exclusively in the cerebellum, and represent dysregulation of cerebellar developmental pathways. Recent genetic profiling has identified 4-5 tumor subtypes; each subtype is characterized by different...

I am currenly working on developing novel therapies for temporal lobe epilepsy in a kainic acid-induced model of epilepsy. The injury creates neurological changes that promote the production of proinflammatory cytokines which result in free radicals products, neurodegeneration, and gliosis. Together...
