 Overview
My research interests are focused on understanding the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the control of movement and behavior, and applying this knowledge to refining treatments for movement disorders to provide enhanced benefit with fewer side effects.

Current projects include:
1. Measuring movement kinematics in patients with hyperkinetic movement disorders to understand how neural circuits underlying involuntary and purposeful movements interact.
2. Measuring movement kinematics in patients with writing tremor to identify which joints and muscles contribute to resultant oscillatory movements of the pen.
3. Measuring cortical EEG during deep brain stimulation.
