about:

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, purusing research in neurorehabilitation. I am exploring ways to enhance neuroplasticity in the motor system in order to improve an individual's motor capabilities after neurological injury, such as stroke, and studying how individual differences in neural recovery after brain injury may help us to predict rehabilitation outcomes and prescribe optimal treatment programs.

I use neuroimaging tools such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), real-time fMRI neurofeedback, structural MRI, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), as well as behavioral measures.

I recently completed my Ph.D. in August 2012 at the University of Southern California, in the Brain and Creativity Institute and the Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry, and was in the A-Z Laboratory under Dr. Lisa-Aziz-Zadeh. I am a registered and licensed occupational therapist, with a focus on adult neurorehabiltiation.
