Research interests

Her main interest is the study of human epilepsy using a multi-methodological approach. She has several functional intracranial EEG and MRI projects. She is also interested in finding a reliable brainstem biomarker for the prevention of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), a project initiated at CHUV and conducted in parallel in the USA. This study specifically examines brainstem responses to apnea challenges in patients with intractable epilepsy.
