Changes in brain connectivity following language rehabilitation in individuals with aphasia
I am broadly interested in brain plasticity and language rehabilitation in individuals with acquired brain damage.
Nowadays, I study the rearrangement of neural circuits following language treatment in individuals with aphasia. Specifically, brain activity and effective connectivity, measured by fMRI.
My research interests are also shaped by the emerging non-invasive brain stimulation techniques to facilitate language rehabilitation, such as tDCS, TMS, etc.

Effect of practice variability on cognitive rehabilitation
My PhD research involves examining the effect of practice variability and practice order on cognitive training of response inhibition. We focus on understanding the mechanisms that promote generalization of training in healthy individuals and individuals who suffer from cognitive deficits resulting from traumatic brain injury.
