I am interested in understanding the neural basis of BOLD fMRI signals in non-human primate brain, as well as translating fMRI and electrophysiology analysis techniques to the clinic to better investigate the functional connectivity of human brain.
My research is focused on investigating the spatial correspondence between fMRI signals and underlying neural activity (local field potentials), and developing stationary and non-stationary models of dynamic changes in resting state functional connectivity using fMRI and electrophysiology.
