Postdoctoral Research Fellow
I joined the group of Prof. Peter Brown in May 2013 for a postdoctoral research fellow in association with Prof. Heidi Johansen-Berg at the FMRIB.
My research interest lies in the better understanding of the pathological relevance of synchronous oscillations in healthy subjects and patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
The goals of my current project are first to understand the neural circuit abnormalities in Parkinson's disease and second to investigate whether these network changes represent an early feature of the disease.
The ongoing study combines transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in order to establish a non-invasive method to investigate neural network changes that occur in the brain of PD patients.
