My primary research interests lie in the development and application of advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to study neurological disorders, particularly of the brain in children. MRI allows us to take various pictures of the brain quickly and non-invasively from a patient or volunteer. Our CLLRNet focus is to use state-of-the-art MRI techniques to determine whether or not underlying biological abnormalities, such as poorly developed white matter tracts in the brain, are related with poor reading ability or various other cognitive impairments. In addition, advanced MRI techniques that are not currently used in the clinic may discover the underlying, perhaps subtle, brain abnormalities associated with autism or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way of learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school. Improving my reading skills will open up the doors to future prospects.
