I am assistant professor in the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California, where I study how traumatic brain injury affects brain structure, white matter architecture, neurological function and mental health in older adults. Specific research activities focus on the following major topics:
(1) traumatic brain injury (TBI) in older adults
(2) aging- and TBI-related reorganization of the human connectome
(3) the relationship between TBI and dementia
(4) aging and TBI effects upon brain function
The circular diagram above is a connectogram and was pioneered to facilitate the visualization of human brain wiring in health and disease.
