Neurology is too important to be left to the neurology department.

Systems medicine: Dynamics and Neuromodulation of Migraine

My research experience includes theoretical research on cutting–edge complex systems theory applied to neurological diseases, such as migraine and stroke, and to traumatic brain injury from concussions to severe injuries. I develop quantitative models with a two–fold objective:

(1) the mechanistic validation of generated hypotheses from medical genetics that relate disease genotype (in particular, disturbed function in ion channel subunits, pumps, and other proteins that regulate ion homeostasis) to phenotype (e.g. migraine with / without aura), and

(2) to fuse dynamical systems theory with control theory and drive innovation in therapeutic brain stimulation in neurological diseases. [more]
