I received my Bachelor of Science degree in 2006 upon graduating from Mount St. Mary's College and Seminary. I pursued further education at American University and graduated with a Master of Arts degree in 2009.
My research investigates the neural circuitry mediating efficacious deep brain stimulation for movement disorders. To accomplish these aims, I employ state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging and optogenetic tools.
