Research Description

I am interested in studying the neural mechanisms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients to better understand their clinical trajectory in developing neurodegenerative disease. The aim of my research is to utilize neuroimaging techniques to characterize hippocampal structural changes in TBI patients to inform and improve the clinical assessment of developing dementia.
