Our research focused on multi-modal brain imaging aimed at understanding individual differences. A major goal of our work is to improve surgical planning for epilepsy and brain tumor patients. Another goal is to develop imaging phenotypes that will help us identify genetic underpinnings of some psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia.
