Research Interests:

My research interests are in understanding the neural mechanisms that provide us with skilled knowledge of performing activities of daily living, namely tool use. I am interested in using multimodal neuroimaging techniques to identify neural networks involved in the acquisition and formation of tool use behavior. I am especially interested in understanding how these networks change in neural pathology, amputation, and how they may be affected by developmental abnormalities.
