Research interests:

My research interests center on the investigation of neurological conditions that affect the human language system. I am enthusiastic about using different neuroimaging approaches (e.g. fMRI, DTI, neurofeedback) to get a better understanding of language organization and reorganization in the brain. Furthermore, I am fascinated by the relationship between language and music and how the latter could be used to improve language difficulties in people suffering from dyslexia or aphasia.
