Research Interests

I am interested in using machine learning and pattern recognition, and computational models to improve treatments for Parkinsonís disease, as well as other movement disorders. Deep brain stimulation is a popular treatment for PD, as well as other movement disorders, but there are many challenges associated with DBS, in particular, how to program the stimulator to 1) increase therapy, 2) decrease side effects, and 3) reduce power consumption (and therefor increase the life of the device). I am working to develop machine learning tools to optimize the DBS programming process, using a combination of computational models and non-human primate research. It is our hope that by developing novel machine learning tools to assist in programming the DBS devices, we can improve patient outcomes.
