David Zhou is a PhD candidate in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studying with Emery Brown, MD, PhD. He received a MS in computational biology from Carnegie Mellon University and a BA in neuroscience from Columbia University. His research project focuses on mapping brainstem circuits and functions in general anesthesia and coma using multimodal neuroimaging methods. In collaboration with the Laboratory for Neuroimaging in Coma and Consciousness at Massachusetts General Hospital led by Brian Edlow MD, he studies electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with disorders of consciousness. His long-term interests include the development of longitudinal biomarkers for detecting neurological recovery in clinical patients suffering from traumatic coma.
