Research Interests:

I am most interested in the relationship between the cerebellum, language, and corresponding brain networks. My research interests lie in using neuropsychological testing and structural imaging techniques to understand how cerebellar damage affects the rest of the brain and behavior. Some specific areas of interest include cerebellar atrophy, structural organization of the cerebellum, neural reorganization, and the neural mechanisms of working memory, automaticity, and language.
