My research focuses on network analysis of connectivity in the brain, with a particular emphasis on characterizing temporal fluctuations in network properties of brain functional connectivity using graph theoretical analysis and computational modeling. I am also interested in examining network properties of brain structural connectivity in the context of information networking and utilizing this knowledge to improve the performance of information network systems.
