Biographical Sketch 
My research focuses on the utilization of Magnetoencephalography (MEG) in epilepsy source localization and functional mapping. MEG is a technology that is available in very few centers across the world. It measures non invasively the magnetic field generated by neurons at millisecond resolution. MEG can be used to study cortical events that require rapid sequential activation such as cognitive functions and seizure propagation.

Research/Clinical Interest
Functional imaging in pediatric epilepsy
My research utilizes computational neuroscience methods on Magnetoencephalography/ EEG and MRI data for epilepsy localization as well as functional mapping of important brain functions to improve outcome in pediatric epilepsy surgery
