I am a neurologist who specializes in clinical neurophysiology. At Seton Hall University, I teach Neuroscience and Clinical Neurology. I am interested in exploring cortical synaptic plasticity in order to better understand the pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric diseases and develop treatments for these conditions.

I am currently conducting basic science studies in animal models of neuropsychiatric diseases using cellular, physiological and behavioral methods. Furthermore, I attempt to restore normal synaptic activity and behaviors by using non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and direct current stimulation (tDCS).

I am also actively engaged in clinical research in patients with major depression and dementia. My goal is to translate my basic research results into clinical applications.
