Key research interests in data science applied to epilepsy:
1. Natural seizure patterns - this includes understanding the natural fluctuations of seizure counts, seizure clustering, and seizure forecasting.
2. Biosensor dynamics - here we are using biosensors such as ECG and pulse oximetry to understand hidden markers of risk for sudden cardiac death and/or sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP).
3. Clinical trial improvements - developing techniques for more rapid, more efficient yet less expensive clinical trials in epilepsy that will accelerate bringing novel treatments to this disease.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
