- Department of Neurological Surgery
I am an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at UC Davis. My clinical practice focuses on functional & epilepsy surgery, with an emphasis on neuromodulation and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Together with Assistant Professor Sergey Stavisky, PhD, I co-direct the UC Davis Neuroprosthetics Lab. Our group focuses on the intersection between clinical neurophysiology, computational neuroscience, and neuroprosthetics. We are especially interested in developing brain computer interface technology to help people living with paralysis. Our primary focus is to develop technologies to restore speech for people who cannot speak (e.g. due to ALS or stroke), and reach & grasp for people with tetraplegia (e.g. due to spinal cord injury or other neurodegenerative diseases).
