Research Interests: I am currently working on two lines of research: 1) to further understanding of human decision making and cognitive differences across individuals and 2) to classify and model markers of epilepsy and related cognitive impairments. To meet these goals I evaluate both electrical signals recorded from the human brain (intracranial and scalp EEG) and human behavior.
