Research Interests

I am a neuroscientist with training in physics and cognitive sciences and a central interest in depressive disorders and their symptom trajectories. My research program aims to identify individual-specific neural principles of brain function and organization that underly symptoms of depression. To this end, I utilize functional MRI, network science, and machine learning methods. My work bridges the fields of network neuroscience and biological psychiatry to improve our understanding of the brain’s functional organization in depressive disorders and, ultimately, open novel avenues for personalized treatments.
