About me/my research:

My research focus is to investigate the effect of neonatal pain in the greater scope of multi-modal analysis and to optimize the application and methodology of multilevel constrained principal component analysis (MCPCA) for combining brain imaging data and their relationships with clinical, behavioral, and genetic predictors.
