Biography

Like many of you, I have family members and friends who suffer from neurological and psychiatric disorders. It’s heartbreaking to watch loved ones struggle with the effects of these disorders. The bulk of my education and training as a scientist has revolved around studying the brain and how it is affected by brain disorders. My hope is that the information we learn as scientists will inform and improve the way clinicians diagnose and treat their patients—our family members and friends (and maybe even us).

Research Interests

In the Nielsen Brain and Behavior Lab, we are interested in answering questions about the organization of the brain and how neurological and psychiatric illnesses disrupt its organization. To answer these questions, we use a variety of analytical techniques to extract quantitative information from MRI scans.
