Boris [at] BIC

I am Assistant Professor at the Montreal Neurological Institute and lead the Multimodal Imaging and Connectome Analysis lab.

Our research integrates structural, functional, and metabolic neuroimaging techniques to characterize brain anatomy, connectivity, and inter-individual variability in healthy and diseased populations, including drug-resistant epilepsy and autism spectrum conditions.

Using statistical modeling, pattern learning, and network analysis techniques, we aim to identify substrates of cognitive and affective capacities and to predict clinically-relevant outcomes.

We participate in longitudinal imaging studies to track brain plasticity and disease progression in neurological disorders.
