My overall research has mainly involved the use of non-invasive brain stimulation tools such as repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial Electric Stimulation (tES) in different clinical populations as well as healthy subjects, to test hypotheses regarding pathologies of different psychiatric disorders and new treatment avenues. I am also interested in using NIBS methods to enhance cognitive functions such as sustained attention and working memories.
