Christian received his Bachelor?s Degree at the University of California, Berkeley, where he developed his initial interest in functional brain imaging at the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute with the D?Esposito Lab. He later attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for his graduate studies and obtained his Doctorate Degree in the Neurosciences focusing on frequency analysis of the intrinsic low-frequency oscillation of the resting-state in populations of aging and ischemic stroke using rs-fMRI.
Currently, Christian is interested in the characterization of cortical system disruption in Parkinson?s disease population, in terms of functional network interactions and dynamics of the network connectivity.
