Research Assistant

I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electronic Engineering at IAUCTB in 1996 and a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering at City College of New York in 2009. I joined the fMRI lab in 2009 to work on the application of probabilistic tractography in brain tumor, particularly for identifying major neural pathways of primary language and corticobulbar tracts and for overcoming the limitations of deterministic DTI. Since then, I have utilized multimodal neuroimaging techniques, including diffusion MRI, probabilistic and deterministic tractography, resting state fMRI (rfMRI), diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI), network analysis, and brain morphology analysis and applied them to clinical and translational studies investigating the impact of tumors on structure and function of cerebral networks. I am currently investigating methods to minimize the tumor-induced neurovascular uncoupling (NVU) effect using rfMRI.
