Brief Clinical/Research Interest Statement:

Research in my lab is focused on understanding the neurobiological basis of language and auditory processing. We use a variety of methods to investigate these systems including behavioral testing and measurements of neural activity using magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI).
