I am an Assistant Professor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School, board certified in Neurology and Sleep Medicine. My clinical exposure to patients with sleep disorders and cognitive problems has driven my research interest of better understanding the plastic brain processes during sleep which result in the formation of new memories and how those processes are affected by diseases and genes.

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.
