Clinical research: biomarkers
Implementation Science
Non-invasive neuro modulation

My multidisciplinary research program is focused on the investigation of endophenotypic and biological markers for the subtyping of complex movement disorders, primarily dystonia, tic and other neurodevelopmental disorders and Parkinson’s disease. I am also conducting research to improve multidisciplinary pathways of care for complex movement disorders sitting at the interface between Neurology and Mental Health, and on novel non-invasive neurostimulation approaches (alternate current stimulation, low intensity focused ultrasound stimulation).
