Biography

I study sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), which is the leading cause of death in refractory epilepsy. In particular, my research focuses on a potential risk factor called post-ictal generalized EEG suppression. This is a period of reduced EEG amplitude following some seizures. My hope is to determine potential neural mechanisms underlying this suppression in order to ultimately reduce risk of SUDEP.
