Asif Jamil, PhD

Position: Instructor
Categories: Faculty

Dr. Jamil received his B.Sc in Biology at University of Maryland, College Park, his M.Sc in Neuroimaging at Kings College London (UK), and his Ph.D in Neuroscience at the University of Goettingen (Germany). He is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Laboratory of Neuropsychiatry and Neuromodulation. Asif’s research is focused on innovating and optimizing the design and application of non-invasive neuromodulation techniques such as TMS, tACS and tDCS for potential use in neuropsychiatric disorders. His doctoral and post-doctoral work, which combined neuromodulation with neuroimaging techniques (e.g., EEG and fMRI), has advanced the mechanistic understanding of how non-invasive brain stimulation alters neurophysiology, neuroplasticity, and ultimately behavior and function.
