About Me: I recently earned my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Florida. My main research interest is in studying the roles of oscillatory neuronal networks in higher order cognition. As a member of the Knight lab, I will be investigating the dynamics of oscillatory networks subserving somatosensory working memory and attention, with an emphasis on the role of the prefrontal cortex in these networks. This will be accomplished through the use of both electrocorticographic (ECoG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings from human subjects. The goal of this research will be to achieve a more complete understanding of the top-down oscillatory network processes involved in working memory and attention. This knowledge might be utilized to develop biomarkers to guide treatments and track the progress of recovery from injury to frontal cortex.
