Area of research expertise:
I have several years experience in computational brain imaging and applied biomedical engineering in clinical settings. I have pursued diverse challenges in biomedical engineering research, clinical operations, cross-discipline team development, knowledge translation, health systems management, and strategic planning. My main motivations include (a) improving brain health through combining health systems transformation and quantitative approaches, (b) improvement to treatment and understanding of brain disorders through quantatitve imaging approaches, and (c) optimization of processes and procedures for quality and efficiency.

My areas of specialization include Functional Brain Mapping, Image-Guided Neurosurgery, human brain MRI/fMRI acquisition and processing, stereotaxic neurosurgical methods, computational approaches and geometry, multivariate analysis, surgical synoptic reporting, surgical quality outcomes, applied machine learning, deep learning
