I joined the lab in October 2010 after receiving my PhD from Queen's University in Kingston, Canada. Working with Doug Munoz, I studied task switching and executive control in Parkinson's disease, using fMRI and saccadic eye movements. My interests lie in understanding basal ganglia networks underlying the cognitive control over motor behavior. In the D'Esposito Lab, I am conducting studies aimed to investigate how the prefrontal cortex can be assisted by the basal ganglia in properly configuring the motor system towards executing an appropriate response. I use Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to alter function in the prefrontal cortex and the frontal eye fields, with the intent to modulate processing in the basal ganglia and other functionally connected regions.
