Kevin obtained a PhD in Neuroscience from Northwestern University while working in the Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences Department and a BS/BA in Psychology and English from Boston College. His dissertation research focused on understanding the neural mechanisms underlying upper extremity impairments in individuals with chronic stroke and subsequent motor improvements following novel interventions. His postdoctoral work at Stanford with Dr. Helen Bronte-Stewart focused on the neural features associated with different symptoms in individuals with Parkinson's disease using a combination of structural imaging, neurophysiology, and kinematic analysis, as well as carrying out closed-loop deep brain stimulation for freezing of gait. He was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship for Basic Scientists from the Parkinson's Foundation to investigate the cognitive correlates of gait impairment in Parkinson's disease. He now works as a Science and Engineering Associate and is helping conduct a new clinical trial using a novel deep brain stimulation approach for cognitive impairment in Parkinson's disease.
