My research background focuses on understanding how the mammalian brain functions within normal and pathological states. Currently, I'm interested in developing and utilizing optical and electrical techniques (i.e. fluorescent imaging, intrinsic optical imaging, two-photon microscopy) that are able to simultaneously monitor intracellular/extracellular ionic concentrations along with brain activity during increased states of hyper excitability. My expertise is in epileptic and spreading depression disorders and I've designed, patented, and pioneered a new oxygen sensing technology that is able to detect seizures in living brain tissue. In addition to oxygen, I am also currently exploring new nanosensing devices to monitor real time analyte dynamics in living tissue.
