Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My work seeks to explore how personality relates to other cognitive skills in those with a history of TBI. Work will also explore personality as biomarker, mediating or moderating treatment response in traumatic brain injury, other medical/psychological comorbidities, and quality of life. Under the mentorship of Maheen Adamson, Ph.D, I will also be involved with rTMS treatment and neuroimaging methods. I am also completing hours for licensure, performing neuropsychological assessments in our TBI clinic. Essentially the final goal is to learn about the relationship of personality and cognitive skills in order to develop treatment for those who are unresponsive to treatment likely due to personality factors.
