Adolescence is a time of major physical, chemical, and biological changes, as well as a common period of onset for various brain-related disorders. Thus, it is crucial that we develop methods that help us achieve a full understanding of normative neurodevelopment so as to better characterize aberrant neurodevelopment. My work is focused on providing such an understanding through the use of brain networks generated from multimodal neuroimaging. I am currently looking at new ways to integrate multiple MRI contrasts in order to create a brain network "fingerprint" for an individual. In theory, these methods will be more robust to capturing an individual's neurobiological profile, and thus more sensitive to inter-individual differences in behavior, cognition, and psychopathology.
