Principle Investigator

Improving Brain Health through Dynamic Mechanisms, Biomarkers, and Therapies
FENG LIU, PHD
Postdoc Fellow

Feng is interested in applying statistical and/or machine learning models to solve brain imaging problems using EEG/MEG recordings to better understand how our brain works. He is also interested in variant optimization topics and applications, such as convex optimization, optimization over graph, wind farm layout optimization.
PEGAH KAHALI, MD
Postdoc Associate

Pegah is interested in understanding the electrophysiological dynamics of local and global brain states, their neurometabolic determinants and underlying neurocircuitries
LAURA A. SANTA CRUZ MERCADO, MD
Research Fellow (Postdoc Associate) MGH- Harvard Medical School

The goal of Laura’s research is to investigate the underlying mechanisms of anesthetics action on the brain and the relationship between metabolic and immune brain state, neurophysiological circuits, and anesthetic drugs. In addition, Laura is interested in understanding the pathophysiology of cognitive disorders, as it relates to anesthesia and surgery, in different at-risk populations such as elderly, Alzheimer's, MS, cancer, septic, and IBD patients
EMILY P. STEPHEN, PHD
Postdoc Fellow

Emily uses statistical modeling and source localization techniques to study brain rhythms under anesthesia.
FANGYUN TIAN, PHD
Research Fellow

Fangyun is interested in investigating the neurophysiological mechanisms of general anesthesia and consciousness using biomedical signal processing and statistical modeling approaches
AMANDA BECK, MS
MIT PhD Candidate in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Amanda is interested in and pursuing signal processing methods to improve analysis of neural data, investigation of neurodegeneration, and design of neuromodulation systems. Amanda is also interested in a variety of medical research fields including precision medicine and AI for pathology.
MINGJIAN (ALEX) HE
HST MEMP PhD candidate

Alex is interested in understanding, diagnosing, and preventing Alzheimer’s disease with advanced signal processing and statistical modeling tools
GLADIA HOTAN
PhD candidate

Gladia is interested in EEG source localization, state-space modeling, functional connectivity
DAVID W ZHOU, MS
PhD candidate

David is interested in general anesthesia and disorders of consciousness.
ANDREW MULLEN, BSC
MIT Masters Student – Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Andrew's research interests include clinical electrophysiology, systems neuroscience, and neuroscience methods development.
TAYLOR DELP
Clinical Research Coordinator

Currently, Taylor has interest in all things medicine. He is infatuated with learning. He hopes to one day become a surgeon and provide acute medical care to those less fortunate in third world nations.
CHRISTOPHER COLVIN, MHSC
Clinical Engineer

Christopher has been working in the areas of instructional design and healthcare human factors within the context of both research and quality improvement processes. He has been involved in the design of eLearning courses and educational content for promoting safe and effective practices for anesthesia management, medical device usage, and IV infusion delivery.
CHRIS GILL
Clinical Research Coordinator with Purdon Lab/Neuroscience Statistics Research Lab

Chris’s research interests are focused on investigating the relationship between visual perception, memory, and attention, understanding how these cognitive functions are affected by aging and neuropsychiatric disorders, and integrating this knowledge into diagnostic and therapeutic practices.
