My research interests involve studying nervous system plasticity and the neural bases of functional and behavioral recovery after spinal cord injury.


My projects include studying neural processing and plasticity in centers for touch and pain, with a focus on comparing in vivo electrophysiology and fMRI of the brain and spinal cord before and after spinal cord injury.
