I am a new assistant professor in the Department of Human Physiology at the University of Oregon. My laboratory studies how the brain controls movement. For example, how do we initiate a prepared movement, and how do we cancel a movement that is already underway? To answer these types of questions, we use a combination of behavioral testing, electrophysiology, brain stimulation, and neuroimaging methods. We study both healthy individuals and patients with movement disorders.
I will be accepting graduate students through the Department of Human Physiology Research PhD Program. Please e-mail me if interested.
I am also looking for undergraduate student researchers (please feel free to e-mail me). You may be eligible to participate in SPUR or a similar program.
