    Personal profile

    Research interests

    My research interests are related to conditions that cause epilepsy, autism, and brain malformations in children. My lab uses a combination of biochemical, electrophysiological, genetic, and imaging techniques to analyze human brain specimens and animal and cell culture models. Current projects ongoing in the lab include: 1) Characterizing the development of GABAergic inhibition in the premature and neonatal brain, and determining the effect of conditions causing seizures on this development. 2) Identifying the consequences of abnormal PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway activity on neuronal signaling. 3) Determining the histopathologic and functional outcomes of genetic mutations that cause neurologic disease in children.

    Tuberous sclerosis, epilepsy, fetal neurology, neonatal neurology, brain malformations
